Abstract

The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the emerging discipline of pharmacoeconomics. Specific methodologies and terms are defined. Pharmacoeconomic research is described, related to, and contrasted with clinical drug trials. Additionally, we present a brief overview of the general steps taken designing a pharmacoeconomic study. Finally, several issues centering around pharmacoeconomic analysis are presented for discussion and debate. The need for high-quality pharmacoeconomic research is stressed along with the need for appropriate education of individuals trained in the health sciences.
