Event Details

Title: Distributional cost-effectiveness analysis – an overview

This presentation will provide an overview of “distributional” or “equity-informative” cost-effectiveness analysis (DCEA) in health care and public health, with illustrative examples and careful attention to the controversial value judgements needed at each stage of the analysis.  The presentation will draw on material being prepared for the forthcoming Oxford University Press book: “Distributional Cost-Effectiveness Analysis: A Handbook of Equity-Informative Health Economic Evaluation”, edited by Richard Cookson, Susan Griffin, Ole Norheim and Anthony Culyer, which is due for publication in late 2020.  The phrase “distributional” emphasises that the focus is on distributions of costs and effects, not just aggregate costs and effects.  The phrase “equity-informative” emphasises that the focus is on generating new information about equity, not just incorporating pre-existing value judgements about equity into the analysis.
