Remember that NICE Guidelines, and these proposed methods, are separate from Appraisals.
Of particular interest to HEDS are Chapters 5-7:
- Identifying the evidence: literature searching and evidence submission
- Reviewing research evidence
- Incorporating economic evaluation
And as an economist, there are some interesting things in there to me. CBA is legitimate (in some cases), ASCOT and ICECAP are legitimate utility measures (in some cases) and the monetary valuation of informal care is legitimate (in some cases). The new reference case, by relevant perspective, is summarised on pages 139-140.
