The original CHEERS Good Practices Task Force Report contributed significantly to the improved reporting of economic evaluations and has now been updated to reflect recent developments in economic evaluation methods and patterns of reporting. This seminar will be of benefit to all those involved in undertaking or interpreting health economic evaluations. The updated CHEERS 2022 statement and good practices task force report, published in Value in Health January 2022, replaces the original CHEERS guidance. This new reporting guidance will help authors provide accurate information on which health interventions are being compared and in what context, how the evaluation was undertaken, what the findings are, and other details that will aid readers, reviewers and decision makers in the interpretation and use of studies. It can also aid those interested in replicating research findings.
Don Husereau will discuss the main changes from the original CHEERS and how they were motivated. He will also discuss how a patient and public participation group was involved in the revision process, and the resources being developed to support CHEERS 2022, as well as the proposals for its dissemination, including the involvement of a wide range of journals in the publication of the statement, and the supposed existence of the mythical CHEERS 2022 beer coaster.
