Economic Models of Colorectal Cancer Screening in Average-Risk Adults: Workshop Summary
SLIDE 2 NOTES: The aims of the pre-Workshop modeling exercise, as I see it, were two-fold: The first was to compare the several different cost-effectiveness analyses of colorectal cancer screening. Such a comparison has three motivations: to gain insight into reasons for different results; to determine areas for future research focus; and potentially to learn something about how different screening strategies stack up against one another. The last motivation, however, is less important than the first two.
The second objective is to use insights from this exercise to better inform future modeling and direct future CRC research efforts. The exercise should lead to better understanding of our parameters, better models, and an identification of questions or issues that need to be incorporated into the models.
