Abstract

To identify the significant inputs, activities, and outputs of a regional poison control center, a production model is described and its potential application to the conduct of economic evaluations delineated. The model can help the researcher identify the significant inputs (costs) incurred through the provision of poison control center services. These inputs directly influence the activities that the poison center is capable of undertaking. Activities undertaken by a poison center are intermediate steps between the inputs and outputs, and serve to convert the various inputs into associated outputs. They form the basis for determining the outputs produced by the poison center services. The outputs derived from poison center services provide the conceptual framework for assessing the effectiveness of a poison center in an economic analysis. Also described are potential applications of the production model in conducting poison center cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analyses.
