Abstract

<h2>Unit Costs of Health and Social Care 2006</h2><p><p><h3>Compiled by Lesley Curtis and Ann Netten</h3><p><p><p>This is the fourteenth volume in a widely-used series bringing together information from a variety of sources to estimate national unit costs for a wide range of health and social care services. It aims to improve unit cost estimates over time, drawing on material as it becomes available, including ongoing and specially commissioned research. <p><p><p>This report consists of tables for more than 130 types of service which, as well as providing the most detailed and comprehensive information possible, also quote sources and assumptions so users can adapt the information for their own purposes. Also included is a preface in which current and new developments are discussed, a guest editorial, and brief articles providing background to user services and descriptions of cost methodology or use of cost estimates, price indices, a reference list of key studies, a glossary and indexes.. <p><p><h3>New in this edition</h3><p><p><p>This year’s volume includes an editorial on conducting and interpreting multi-national economic evaluations, and four new articles: the costs of a home visiting programme for vulnerable families; direct payments; person centred planning; and unit costs and funding..
