ICHPS: Economic Assessments in Randomized Trials

ICHPS Session I-7
4:15 - 6:00, Friday January 18, 2008


This workshop will explore statistical and methodological issues in the
design and analysis of patient-level cost data in randomized trials. The
faculty will (1) discuss the steps and strategic issues in the design of
economic assessments in prospective trials; (2) illustrate the issues
related to choice of univariate and multivariate methods (OLS, log OLS, GLM,
etc.) for evaluating and reporting the impact of the intervention on costs;
and (3) introduce the different methods available for calculating and
reporting sampling uncertainty (i.e. confidence intervals) for the joint
comparison of costs and effects.
