November 2013 reports
In 2013, for the Australian Department of Health, the CIE undertook three reviews on the cost-effectiveness of several recommendations in the draft Clinical Practice Guidelines for Antenatal Care. The National Antenatal Care Guidelines in Australia are designed to support Australian maternity services to provide high quality, evidence based antenatal care to healthy pregnant women. Sarina developed probabilistic models of cost and benefit flows from current and alternative approaches to screening with respect to patient (maternal and neonate) outcomes to assess each recommendation.
