ABSTRACT Objectives To conduct a systematic review of cost-utility studies of community-based services provided by pharmacists and to examine their reporting and methodological quality. Methods A comprehensive literature search was performed in February 2019 using a replicable search strategy in bibliographic databases MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the NHS Economic Evaluations Database from their inception onwards. Two reviewers independently screened the literature, abstracted data from full-text articl...

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most common infections treated in primary care and the emergency department. The RxOUTMAP study demonstrated that management of uncomplicated UTI by community pharmacists resulted in high clinical cure rates similar to those reported in the literature and a high degree of patient satisfaction. The objective of this study was to assess the cost-effectiveness and budget impact of community pharmacist-initiated compared to family or emergency physician-...

Background Community pharmacists’ scope of practice has been evolving from a traditional dispensing role to providing patient-centered services. Given the constraints in healthcare budget and a need for efficient use of finite resources, decision makers may require convincing evidence of value to recommend these services for public funding. Several economic evaluations have aimed to demonstrate the value of services provided by community pharmacists.

Abstract Background Although the absence of aneurysm-related mortality, postimplantation rupture, and reintervention after EVAR is desirable, it may not necessarily reflect successful aneurysm sac exclusion. Sac regression may be a more sensitive marker for EVAR success and may be influenced by factors beyond the presence or absence of an endoleak. The objective of this study is to determine the rate of overall long-term sac regression after EVAR and the influence of nonanatomic factors, and end...

Cost-utility analysis (CUA) is a widely recommended form of health economic evaluation worldwide. The outcome measure in CUA is quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs), which are calculated using health state utility values (HSUVs) and corresponding life-years. Therefore, HSUVs play a significant role in determining cost-effectiveness. Formal adoption and endorsement of CUAs by reimbursement authorities motivates methodological advancement in HSUV measurement and application. A large body of evidenc...
