An investigation of the effect of regional variation in the treatment of hypertension by Terkel Christiansen( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clinical practice with respect to treatment of hypertension varies. Does outcome in terms of mortality and morbidity also vary at the level of small areas (countries)? We might term this a question of 'aggregate effectiveness' as opposed to 'micro effectiveness' demonstrated in clinical trials. In the present study the question of aggregate effectiveness is addressed by means of concepts borrowed from health economics (production functions), and a statistical technique known among econometricians as pooled time series cross section regression analysis. During the observation period, drug consumption has been demonstrated to vary considerably between countries for any given year. This holds true for both a monetary and a psysical measure of drug consumption. By pooled time series cross section regression analyses it was found that loss of life years and loss of healthy time show a tendency towards negative regression on consumption of drugs
