The International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research’s publication, Value in Health, has issued a call for papers as it prepares to spotlight in a special theme health technology assessment in health care decision making.
Value in Health in its call says there are highly-variable attitudes toward health technology assessment in the United States and Europe.
“The reasons underlying these differences in approaches towards HTA are not sufficiently understood,” the call states. “To help address this gap, Value in Health is seeking empirical, evidence based research and commentary exploring the role of culture, values, and institutional context in shaping attitudes towards the use of HTA in decision making.”
The deadline for paper submissions is Nov. 15, according to an email from ISPOR.
Submissions received before the deadline “have the best chance for inclusion in this themed section.”
