  1. Centralised versus decentralised funding of evaluative research : impact on medical technology policy in Italy.

    Article - En anglais

    Medical technology assessment in Italy is considered to have had scant impact on policy.

    Government has played a limited role in financing evaluative research and increased public funding might therefore be expected to have a positive effect on the contribution that this activity makes to policy.

    The choice of arrangements for such funding, however, must take account of the broader institutional context in which these operate.

    Intergovernmental relations in any country are inherently difficult due to the fact that the distribution of powers is in general poorly specified and to a tendency for central government to try to impose itself.

    Budgetary difficulties may exacerbate the problem.
