Evaluating preventive care : report on a workshop by Louise B Russell( Book )

9 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent advances in prevention offer exciting possibilities for improving health in middle and old age. As better health makes it possible for people to remain active longer, it may bring substantial changes in the financial demands on public and private programs, in the number of elderly people living in poverty, and in other areas important to public policy. To understand these consequences better it is necessary to evaluate carefully the costs and effects of prevention. In this timely and comprehensive volume, experts in medicine, epidemiology, and evaluation methods consider which areas of prevention are ready for evaluation. Six areas are reviewed: drug therapy for high blood pressure, smoking, exercise, dietary calcium, alcohol use, and obesity

Educated guesses : making policy about medical screening tests by Louise B Russell( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three case studies presented here, each important in its own right, raise serious questions about how tests are evaluated, recommendations formed, and medical resources allocated. At a time when American health care policies and the escalating costs of health care are the object of renewed scrutiny, Russell's challenge to conventional wisdom is especially important. Based on a detailed analysis of the available medical research, yet written in a straightforward, jargon-free style, Educated Guesses will be required reading for all those concerned about making informed choices about health care policies and their personal health."--Publisher description (LoC)

Cost-effectiveness in health and medicine by Marthe R Gold( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique, in-depth discussion of the uses and conduct of cost-effectiveness analyses (CEAs) as decision-making aids in the health and medical fields, this book is the product of over two years of comprehensive research and deliberation by a multi-disciplinary panel of economists, ethicists, psychometricians, and clinicians appointed by the U.S. Public Health Service. Exploring cost-effectiveness in the context of societal decision making for resource allocation purposes, the authors propose that analysts include a "reference-case" analysis in all CEAs designed to inform resource allocation, and they put forth the most explicit set of guidelines (together with their rationale) ever defined on the conduct of CEAs
