Defines and discusses the commonalities and differences among comparative effectiveness and comparative efficacy research, utility-based and logic-based analysis and decision-making, and evidence-based and patient-centered practice
Covers a comprehensive span of health care in the twenty-first century, including medicine, nursing, and dentistry
Written by international experts in the field of health care delivery
Recent trends in health care across the United States and internationally have emphasized a novel approach that consists in comparing the effectiveness and efficacy of treatment interventions with a patient-centered emphasis (i.e., evidence-based health care), while ensuring cost constraints, maximizing benefits, and minimizing risks. In this book, experts in comparative effectiveness and efficacy research and analysis for practice (CEERAP) in health care in general address a range of topical issues. The emphasis is on implications for endodontics and nursing, both of which are considered in a series of detailed chapters. Commonalities and differences among CEERAP, utility-based and logic-based analysis and decision-making, and evidence-based and patient-centered practice are defined and discussed. The book concludes by examining applications for CEERAP in developing patient-centered optimal treatment interventions for the next decade.
