Are the results of this economic analysis valid?


  1. Is this report really asking an economic question
    • comparing well-defined alternative courses of action?
    • with a specified point of view (a hospital, ministry of health or preferably society as a whole) from which the costs and effects are being viewed?
  2. Does it cite good evidence (that would meet criteria in thesingle study and the systematic review tables) of the efficacy of the alternatives?
  3. Does it identify alll the costs and effects you think it should and did it select credible measures for them?
