Weight Management Economic Assessment Tool


Public Health England

Subject Keywords: Economic assessment of weight management interventions
Topic: Obesity
Catalogue: Research and Evaluation
Type: Tool
Region: United Kingdom

This tool is designed to help public health professionals make an economic assessment of existing or planned weight management interventions. It will be useful to commissioners who wish to compare the costs of an intervention with potential cost savings it may produce. The tool has been developed by Public Health England in conjunction with a panel of experts.
NOTE: this version is Phase One of the tool. Phase Two is under development. In particular we are exploring alternative relative risk estimates, the incorporation of social care costs and a time horizon which may be specified by the user.
Phase Two of the tool will be available later in 2015.
