Equity Oriented Toolkit ~ Knowledge Translation and Implementation Tools
WHO Collaborating Center for Health Technology Assessment ~ University of Ottawa
The Equity-Oriented Tool Kit for Health Technology Assessment – A needs-based health technology assessment model is used to provide methods to match the identified health needs of a population, to the most appropriate interventions. The existing tool kit focused on averages, but this ignored distributional issues and equity gradients.
There are four sections to this tool kit: (1) Burden of Illness (2) Community Effectiveness (3) Economic Evaluation and (4) Knowledge Translation & Implementation for Health Technology Assessment.
Each section discusses the conceptual background to its topic and then presents a comparative assessment of tools, each of which is summarized in one to two pages
– Burden of Illness: http://www.iph.uottawa.ca/whohta/projects/eo_toolkit/chp1/index.htm
– Community Effectiveness: http://www.iph.uottawa.ca/whohta/projects/eo_toolkit/chp2/index.htm
– Economic Evaluation: http://www.iph.uottawa.ca/whohta/projects/eo_toolkit/chp3/index.htm
– Knowledge Translation & Implementation http://www.iph.uottawa.ca/whohta/projects/eo_toolkit/chp4/index.htm
