One piece of a puzzle: How can economic evaluation help your research show “Value for Money”?

Speaker: Wanrudee Isaranuwatchai, University of Toronto

Given the limited resources we are faced with in health care, the ability to apply economic thinking when making a choiceWandrudee or a decision can be beneficial. Economic evaluation is a technique which enables an objective comparison of two or more health interventions or a quantification of a potential impact of a health initiative through an economic lens. Economic evaluation could provide another piece of evidence to assist health providers, decision-makers, and policy-makers in their decision-making process. This talk will present different types of questions which economic evaluation could help answer and their approaches through a practical example of an economic evaluation of a mental health intervention.
