    DescriptionHIGHLY COMMENDED IN THE BMA MEDICAL BOOK AWARDS 2013! From reviews on Amazon.co.uk: " I found this book to be extremely informative and yet very accessible to non-experts." " this book provides valuable insights into the methodology of health economists and explains key principles in a manner that is relatable and ENJOYABLE...I couldn't recommend this book more - I've bought 4 more copies to share with my team!" "All in all an essential book if you want to start to get to grips with how decisions regarding drug trials and treatments are made - particularly in the current economic climate." "The use of examples from healthcare and other walks of life really aids understanding. If you're looking for a book to introduce you to the general concepts of health economics then this will do the job perfectly." "So, 'healthcare economics made easy' - good luck with that! But you know what, this book pulls it off. Even if your interest in the subject amounts to how much you're prepared to pay for a packet of throat sweets, this book will help you understand the decisions that ultimately affect every single one of us. Better still, it does it in a hundred pages or so and really simple language. At a time when who decides how healthcare is commissioned and how our money is spent, it's well worth anyone picking this book up to see how and why decisions are made." GPs, consultants and other health professionals are often asked for their opinion on health economic data and this clearly isn't their area of expertise. Healthcare Economics Made Easy will equip the reader with the necessary skills to make valid decisions based on the economic data and with the background knowledge to understand the health economics literature. This book provides insight into the economic methods that are used to promote public health policies, the techniques used for grading and valuing evidence and the statistics relied upon, without trying to re-train the reader as a health economist. If you are left bemused by terms such as QALY, health utility analysis and cost minimisation analysis, then this is the book for you!
