The objective of the activity for this course is to make a detailed and justified critical assessment of a cost‐of‐illness study for ONE of the following diseases or health problems: road accidents, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, diabetes, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, glaucoma, low back pain, obesity, Down’s syndrome, or AIDS. TITLE: DETAILED CRITICAL ASSESSMENT OF A COST‐OF‐ILLNESS STUDYASSIGNMENT: The first step is to choose one of the diseases or health problems listed in the section “Objective of the activity”. Each participant must choose ONE single disease or health problem from the list with a view to making a detailed critical assessment of a study or paper.Once the disease or health problem has been chosen, the next step is to choose ONE cost‐of‐ illness1 study or report on that disease. The study or report shall be chosen by performing a search in the PubMed/MEDLINE database, or through Google Scholar. The PubMed/MEDLINE bibliographic database can be freely accessed at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/. The objective of the activity for this course is to make a detailed and justified critical
assessment of a cost-of—illness study for ONE of the following diseases or health problems:
road accidents, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, diabetes, chronic bronchitis,
lung cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, glaucoma, low back pain, obesity, Down’s syndrome, or AIDS. The first step is to choose one of the diseases or health problems listed in the section “Objective
of the activity”. Each participant must choose ONE single disease or health problem from the list
with a view to making a detailed critical assessment of a study or paper. Once the disease or health problem has been chosen, the next step is to choose ONE cost-of-
illness1 study or report on that disease. The study or report shall be chosen by performing a
search in the PubMed/MEDLINE database, or through Google Scholar. The PubMed/MEDLINE bibliographic database can be freely accessed at: httpzflwwwncbi.nlm.nih.gov[pubmed[. Each participant will select ONE single cost-of-illness study for the disease or health problem
he or she has previously chosen. The report or paper chosen by the participant for the critical
assessment proposed in this activity: a) must have been conducted or published after the
year 2000; b) must be a cost-of-illness study in the terms described for this type of study in this
module,- and c) must be accessible in its totality either freely or by means of the electronic
resources ofthe UPF virtual library. Each participant must then make a critical assessment of the cost-of-illness study he or she
has chosen, answering briefly, precisely and in detail each of the questions in the checklist
given in Figure 1 of the paper by Larg 8: Moss (2011). The answers to each of the questions in
this checklist must contain at least: a) a description of how the cost-of—illness study selected
deals with the aspect referred to in the checklist question (e.g., perspective, epidemiological
approach, timeframe, etc.); b) a critical assessment of that aspect in the form of an answer to
the checklist question; and c) when appropriate, a reasoned proposal to improve on or mitigate
any deficiencies or problems detected. 1 NOTE: , make sure that you select a cost-of—illness study, NOT a cost-effectiveness or cost-utility
analysis.
