The Use of Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in Surgical Clinical Research with Dr. Achilles Thoma

In most jurisdictions health care systems are under stress as the demands for health care exceed most systems’ ability to provide them. Although this problem has been highlighted over 40 years ago no solution is in sight. Multiple vested interests conspire to maintain ailing health care systems in a state of chronic inertia. The use of cost-effectiveness analysis in clinical research and translation in clinical practice is a possible solution. In this presentation the use of cost-effectiveness analysis in surgery, and specifically plastic surgery, explains how this can assist in the prudent allocation of scarce health care resources in our health care system.
