Is prevention better than cure? by Louise B Russell( Book )

11 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beneficial effects of prevention on health are increasingly well known, but its costs and risks are not as clear. These dimensions, too, need to be assessed. Making good choices in health, as in other fields, requires consideration of the full range of outcomes - health benefits, health risks, and resource costs. We need better evaluations of prevention to ensure that it receives a reasonable share of resources and that it receives a reasonable share of resources and that those resources are allocated to most effective preventive programs. In this book, the author examines the policy debates about several preventive measures - the smallpox and measles vaccines, drug therepy for high blood pressure, and exercise - to demonstrate the many complex factors involved in evaluation them. For these and other preventive measures, the evidence indicates that they rarely reduce medical expenditures. Thus prevention is not the answer to rising health care costs. Instead it offers better health at additional cost, squarely posing the question: when is the health gain worth the cost? Using the case studies, the volume explains the methods of cost-effectiveness analysis, methods that can contribute toward the balanced and complete evaluations necessary to answer the question

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

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 281 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)
