TSD 19: Partitioned survival analysis as a decision modelling tool (PDF, 529KB)


Cost-effectiveness analyses informing NICE appraisals use a wide range of modelling approaches. Most of these have been subject to detailed discussion within the economic evaluation literature. This has not been the case for one approach, partitioned survival analysis, which is now used in a significant proportion of appraisals.

The objective of this technical support document (TSD) is to describe and critique this approach as a decision modelling tool in order to assist different stakeholders in determining its appropriateness as a modelling approach and basis for informing policy decisions.
