Original Title: MetodehÄndbog for medicinsk teknologivurdering
Authors' objectives: The purpose of the handbook is to introduce the scientific methods and instruments to HTA and in particular to the four main elements of the HTA analysis: the technology, the patient, the organisation and the economy. In relation to an HTA project, the Health Technology Assessment Handbook may help to provide some answers to common questions, for example how the decision-makers questions are specified in the HTA, how the search and collection of literature are performed, how studies could be designed, and how data can be collected and analysed, within these four main elements, to answer the framed HTA questions. As HTA is often an interdisciplinary activity involving many scientific fields, a further objective of the Health Technology Assessment Handbook is to give the various scientific fields involved in the HTA a broader perception of what HTA is, and what the conduct of HTA consists of, and which are the qualifications a project group should meet. The target groups of the handbook are participants in HTA projects and/or advisers who ask for the HTA to be performed that is to say health professionals, political and administrative decisions-makers, interest groups, researchers, etc. It is an advantage to use the Health Technology Assessment Handbook, when planning actual HTA projects, as well as when qualifying project applications.
