Evaluating the Cost-effectiveness of Counselling in Health Care

Voorkant
Psychology Press, 1995 - 210 pagina's
Limited resources in health care mean that the value of counselling is decided in a highly competitive economic arena. Keith Tolley and Nancy Rowland have written a practical guide to the basic principles of evaluating cost-effectiveness to enable counsellors and service providers to carry out analysis for themselves. They provide helpful definitions of technical terms and use case studies to demonstrate how to apply the theory in different contexts.
