An even more challenging issue, at least in terms of computation, is establishing an efficient portfolio of studies and the optimal sequence of research designs. Finally, when priors are not conjugate then, in principle, Monte Carlo sampling could be used to generate predicted posterior distributions for the EVSI calculation. However, this will put the computation task on the edge of what is currently tractable even for simple and stylized models. CONCLUSIONS The last decade has seen some major achievements in economic evaluation methods.

Important contributions include the rediscovery of statistical methods, such as Feiller’s Theorem, to calculate confidence intervals around an ICER (Willan and O’Brien 1996) and the use of net benefits as a way of presenting cost-effectiveness and its uncertainty (Phelps and Mushlin 1991; Stinnett and Mullahy 1998). An important area of work has also been to address the normative question of how uncertainty should be dealt with in making decisions about resource allocation. One perspective on this has been to reject the standard rules of inference reflected in the fixed error probabilities of the hypothesis test or the confidence interval (Claxton 1999).
