Description

Economic Evaluation of Pharmacy Services provides the latest on the trend to a more product-centered and service-centered practice, eschewing traditional economic evaluation techniques that focus on product-to-product comparisons in favor of evaluating processes that measure costs and health outcomes.

Complete with examples focusing on best practices, including various study designs, types of pharmacy services, and types of outcomes being evaluated, the book emphasizes case studies and examples that help readers understand economic evaluation techniques. Many of these techniques are transferable across countries, especially where there are advanced and stable health systems in place. With the help of this practical guide, readers will gain a thorough understanding of the application of economic evaluation of pharmacy services.

Reviews

"...the contribution of the book is important. Particularly welcomed by this reviewer is the book's comprehensive approach in presenting studies from a variety of countries and health systems." --Research in Social and Administrative Pharmacy

"This book provides much needed knowledge in current pharmacy practice. Furthermore, it provides up-to-date information and evaluation of innovative pharmacy services in different countries." --Minji Sohn, Ferris State University

"At a time of expanding scopes of practice within the profession of pharmacy, and the increasing demand by payers, patients, and other health professions to justify the allocation of scarce resources toward new pharmacy services, methodologically sound examples of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness are essential. In this manner, the contribution of the book is important. Particularly welcomed by this reviewer is the book's comprehensive approach in presenting studies from a variety of countries and health systems. As an educator, it is often a challenge to provide examples of pharmaco-economic studies beyond North America and Western Europe." --Roy Thomas Dobson, University of Saskatchewan, Canada, for journal of Research in Social and Administrative Pharmacy
