The old dog and the poor relation: informing funding decisions in palliative care with cost-consequence analysis in the cost-disutility plane

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Limitations of a single effect measure in traditional

    approaches to economic evaluation and the multi-dimensional

    nature of effects of palliative care interventions may lead to system-

    atic under-resourcing where important process of death related out-

    comes are not included. This paper illustrates how comparison in

    the cost-disutility plane (C-DU) facilitates practical inclusion of

    multiple outcomes to better inform funding decisions in palliative

    care.
