Other PCORI methods and comparative effectiveness research guidelines

To follow up on yesterday’s post, it is worth reading a recent BMJ editorial titled “Improving comparative effectiveness research”.  This sets the PCORI guidelines in the context of other methodological work.  It also highlights that all background papers produced for the PCORI draft guidelines are available online (here).  These are detailed examinations of key methods including value of information analysis.  The Editorial also makes reference to, and provides links to, AHRQ and EUNetHTA guidelines.
