  1. Use of contingent valuation to place a monetary value on pharmacy services : An overview and review of the literature.

    Article - En anglais

    An important goal for the pharmacy profession is to quantify the economic value of pharmacy services.

    The contingent valuation (CV), or willingness-to-pay method, offers one approach to valuing the benefits of pharmacy services.

    The potential advantage CV offers is that it reflects, in a single monetary amount, the entire range of attributes (both benefits and « nonbenefits ») offered by the good or service being valued.

    This paper provides a brief overview of the CV method and reviews 10 published studies that used a willingness-to-pay question to place a monetary value on pharmacy services.

    Suggestions for other researchers wishing to use this method are provided.
