Working Papers from CHERE, University of Technology, Sydney
NSW Treasury commissioned this review through the Sax Institute. The aims and specific questions to be addressed were refined after consideration of a background paper, and discussion between NSW Health, NSW Treasury and the author. The aim of the review is to provide information about the ways in which costs and cost effectiveness are being incorporated in the approaches used by agencies within Australia, North America and Europe involved in CPG development and setting standards; and to provide recommendations for the development of the approach to be developed by the ACSQHC. The specific questions this report addresses are: (i) Which countries/health systems have developed and implemented a systematic approach to developing clinical guidelines and/or indicators which include consideration of costs and benefits? (ii) What approaches have been used in Australia? (iii) What evidence is there about the effectiveness or value of these approaches? (iv) What is known about best practice for developing clinical guidelines and/or indicators which include consideration of costs and benefits? (v) What other aspects or issues should be considered in the development of guidelines, standards and indicators?
