Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes: Applications to Patient Care

Fully updated and substantially expanded, this second edition of the well-known ACCP publication will enable practicing pharmacists and pharmacy students to develop knowledge and skill to measure and evaluate economic and patient-based outcomes.

Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes: Applications for Patient Care introduces the reader to the terminology and basic components of health economics, outcomes research, and pharmacoeconomics. The text identifies a strategy for designing a research question, a process for conducting a pharmacoeconomics evaluation, and sources of data for economic outcomes analysis. The text includes an extensive series of economic and humanistic assessments, their purpose and application. Economic outcomes measures include cost-of-illness analysis, cost-minimization analysis, cost-benefit analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, cost-utility analysis, decision analysis, Markov modeling, and sensitivity analysis. Humanistic outcomes measures include health status, patient satisfaction, work outcomes, and patient-based assessments.
