Dissecting a Published Economic Appraisal
The processes undertaken for a real economic appraisal of an infection control alternative is described and the complexities of the tasks are revealed.
Each task is documented so the reader can see what was done, where the task was difficult, and what caveats were built in.
A description of how the findings might be used to inform decision making is also included.
Most of this book has used hypothetical examples to convey ideas and theory. This chapter is a description of a real decision problem for the infection control community.
