Title: Health Technology Assessment in the UK
Post by: Terry White on October 11 2013, 12:13 pm
A review in the Lancet.

"In this Review, we discuss the UK's Health Technology Assessment programme, which is 20 years old in 2013. We situate the programme in the context of the UK landscape for evidence-based medicine, including in relation to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and as guidance to the National Health Service. We identify features that might be of value to other health systems as they confront the challenges of rapid innovation and rising costs. We use examples of recent studies to show the strengths and weaknesses of the programme."

This looks like it might be quite interesting...unfortunately, the link to The Lancet only gives you the same abstract. To read the full article, you need to pay or be a subscriber to The Lancet.

I wonder if anyone has access to the full article, and whether it is possible for them to share it in some way?
