This training module introduces participants to cost-benefit analyses as another type of full economic evaluation. In this training module we explain the purpose and significance of a cost-benefit analysis, and describe important considerations when conducting cost-benefit analysis. At the end of this module, participants should be able to describe the methodological differences between a cost-benefit analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis, and understand when the use of a cost-benefit analysis is most appropriate.
