Editorial Reviews

Review

From reviews of the previous edition:

`The book has some important characteristics that differentiate it from others in the field. Another unique feature is the presentation of tutorials that are highlighted in boxes.' Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics

`This book is a new second edition of what became the standard text for Health Economists and can be heartily recommended to anyone who is interested in this vitally important area of research.' Amazon.com

`An important contribution to studies on the economic evaluation of medical care.' British Medical Journal

`This is essential reading. Only if all managers are aware of the powers of economic techniques will they be used sensibly.' Health Service Journal

`This book suited my needs to perfection and is an ideal accompaniment to a course that combines methodology with critical appraisal and hands-on practical training in using these techniques. The methodological chapters on cost analysis and cost utility are gems... should become the standard text on the subject at the intermediate level at which it is aimed.' Medical Decision Making

`This book is a must for every student in health services sciences.' Acta Hospitalia

`The book is well designed and clearly written.' Canadian Public Policy

`It leaves nothing important in economic evaluation analysis untouched.' Health Policy and Planning

As a PhD student, this book is a required text book. I found it provides a concise and sysmatic guide to economic evaluation. The material is rich and surprisingly not dry. The book provides examples, graphs, and exercises with answers right after the problems!! Eventhough most examples in the book are from a universal health care(single payer system) perspective, I believe researchers in the US can still use it as a guide with a little adjustment.

I will restrict my review to Chapter 8 since that is section I have read and used. But suffice it to say that it precisely addressed the problem I was having--finding a clear overview of the methods avaiable for analyzing cost effectiveness using clinic trial data.

My own literatrue reveiw and requests for information yeiled inconsistent and conflicting recommendations. The chapter in this book gave a clear and concise description of the current methods, tying together the various apporaches I found.

While more details in how to apply the methods would be welcomed, it gives just the right amount of information, without favoring one apporach over the other, to allow the reader to evaluate the options available and decide the best one to persue.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a comprehensive and impartial overview of economic evaluation methods, providing an analyst with a breadth of options to select when planning an economic evaluation. In addition, the authors provide references for learning more detail about particular methods. I found this to be a very helpful guide, compared to several other similar texts.

It's a very useful and well written book for a reasonable price and I have been looking for it for sometime. It has all the economic evaluation methods for health care programmes including clear examples. I would recommend it for any Health Economist and for Public Health Programme Managers.

Drummond, et al., offer an excellent overview of various methods to evaluate care. I picked up this book while visiting Australia and read most of it on my return flight.
