Literature

We conduct systematic literature review (SLR) as well as targeted literature review (TLR) to identify relevant evidence for the decision problem.

We conduct systematic literature review (SLR) as well as targeted literature review (TLR) to identify relevant evidence for the decision problem. A thorough review of literature is helpful in identifying previous modelling approaches used in the therapeutic area, assessing information on efficacy and safety for the treatments considered, and identifying data on costs and quality of life that may have been published. In addition to providing a quick overview of the existing literature, a literature review based on clear research questions ensure that all model assumptions and inputs are derived from evidence-based research.
