PRACTICE PROBLEMS 1. You have the following table of costs and benefits for alternative treatments Treatment # Cost Effectiveness (life years gained) 1 100000 5 2 200000 3 3 400000 10 4 500000 20 A. Which treatment(s) if any, is strongly dominated? 2 is strongly dominated B. Which treatment(s) if any is weakly dominated? 3 is weakly dominated C. Calculate incremental cost effectiveness ratio. (500000-100000)(20-5) = 400000/15 = 26,667 D. Assuming that a life year is considered to be worth up to 100000, which interventions would you choose, in the absence of budgetary constraints? Choose 4 E. How might budgetary constraints affect your decision on which interventions to choose? You might not be able to choose 4 even though it is cost effective 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
