  1. Economic appraisal of laser applications in health care : report of a project.

    Article - En anglais

    This article reports on the results of a project evaluating effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of laser applications in health care.

    The literature was collected, emphasizing well-designed clinical trials and cost-effectiveness analyses.

    Few randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have been done outside the speciality of ophthalmology.

    Even fewer cost-effectiveness studies have been done, despite the frequent claims of cost-effectiveness in the medical literature.

    Review papers were commissioned, and a group of laser experts, economists, and policy-analysts met for 2 days to discuss the policy implications of lasers.
