Understanding the Use of Economic Evaluations in Clinical Research

1:00-2:00 pm (ET)


Webinar Overview

The high cost of health care has been an important issue for decades. There are differing opinions about whether the high costs are worthwhile; however, the effect of technological changes and innovations on increasing health care costs is well documented and resources are limited. As a consequence, many clinicians, researchers and policy makers are interested in understanding the costs of alternative treatments or models of care. An overview of the methods of economic evaluation used in clinical research will be presented (e.g., cost minimization analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis and cost-benefit analysis). Guidelines from the Second Panel on Cost-Effectiveness in Health and Medicine will be discussed and the Consolidated Health Economic Evaluation Reporting Standards (CHEERS) statement will be reviewed.
Objectives:
  • Understand various economic evaluation methods used in clinical research.
  • Apply the CHEERS statement to critically appraise published economic evaluations
