Module 3: Identification and Retrieval of Published Health Economic Evaluation Studies

Retrieving economic evaluation studies from EMBASE

There is a clear distinction within EMTREE between the different types of economic evaluation methodologies.

EMTREE provides an individual indexing term for each type of economic evaluation methodology. In addition, EMTREE provides an additional indexing term - ‘economic evaluation’ (explodes).

The terms ‘cost control’ and ‘cost of illness’ appear as narrower terms under ‘economic evaluation’. This use of these two terms is not strictly correct as these are partial evaluation study types.
