BACKGROUND: The importance of accurately costing implementation strategies is increasingly recognised within the field of implementation science. However, there is a lack of methodological guidance for costing implementation, particularly within digital health settings. This study reports on a systematic review of costing analyses conducted alongsi...

Background The extraordinarily high prevalence of treatment-resistant depression (TRD), coupled with its high economic burden to both healthcare systems and society, underscore how critical it is that resources are managed optimally to address the significant challenge it presents. Objective To review the literature on economic evaluation in TRD sy...

Common mental disorders (CMDs) constitute a major public health and economic burden on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Systematic reviews of economic evaluations of psychological treatments for CMDs are limited. This systematic review examines methods, reports findings and appraises the quality of economic evaluations of psychological tre...

In this article, we explore the reasons why multiarm trials have been conducted and the design and analysis issues they involve. We point to three fundamental reasons for such designs: (1) Multiarm designs allow the estimation of "response surfaces"-that is, the variation in response to an intervention across a range of one or more continuous polic...

Funder: Rosetrees Trust / Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) has unparalleled ability to distinguish between bacteria, with many public health applications. The generation and analysis of WGS data require significant financial investment. We describe a systematic review summarizing economic analyses of genomic surveillance of bacterial pathogens, review...

Background The term “well-becoming” is not new, but is not routinely used in our everyday language or in research in public health economics. It has been applied in early years research. Well-becoming can be thought of as our multitude of life-journeys toward meaning and purposefulness. Objective To develop a new infographic in the spirit of the Da...

To provide full potential benefits to patients, behavioral health interventions often require comprehensive and systematic implementation efforts. The costs of these efforts should therefore be included when organizations decide to fund or adopt a new intervention. However, existing guidelines for conducting economic analyses like cost-effectivenes...

Introduction Economic evaluation currently focuses almost exclusively on the maximization of health, using the Quality-Adjusted Life-Year (QALY) framework with instruments such as the EQ-5D, with a limited number of health-focused dimensions providing the assessment of health benefit. This evaluative framework is likely to be insufficient for setti...
