EUnetHTA methodological guidelines published

“The work with the present guideline was initiated to set a general framework for EUnetHTA on how to conduct economic evaluations as well as to increase the transferability of economic evaluations among EUnetHTA partners. This is especially important in order to enhance the usefulness of economic evaluations conducted within EUnetHTA. A common guidance document may also be useful for countries that do not have a methodological guideline for health economic evaluations. The target group of the guideline is represented by health economists and health technology assessors in Europe, who either review economic evaluations that have been performed by others, or who perform de novo economic evaluations themselves, within projects of EUnetHTA.” (Source: EUNetHTA)

It also contains summaries and comparisons of existing guidelines within EU countries.
