A-to-Z of health economics

Looking for a bit of help with jargon but don’t want to talk to an economist?  There are two free resources that can be used to solve this common dilemma.

The UK National Library of Medicine has a self-study course within its set of Health Economics Information Resources which includes a glossary of frequently encountered terms in health economics.

Alternatively, if you can be bothered to register, an eight page pdf download is available from the publishers Adis called a PharmacoEconomics Guide Chart.
