Webinar: Investing in Prevention: Standards and Innovation in Economic Evaluation


Advocates of prevention have long touted its value, but researchers’ success in quantifying the economic benefits of preventive interventions have often been limited by fragmented methods and practice. 

A number of efforts by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Academies, federal agencies, and foundations over the last decade have led to improvements in these methods. 

This webinar will discuss key standards for economic evaluation as identified by a number of convergent efforts. In particular, the important role of administrative records for mapping the costs and benefits of prevention onto public budgets will be discussed. 

Participants will gain a greater awareness of:

(1) best practices for economic evaluations of prevention,

(2) how to increase the utility of estimates for budget making, and

(3) opportunities to include economic evaluation in ongoing and new studies.
