Core Tip Current clinical guidelines seldom include cost-effectiveness evaluations. Conclusions are typically based on clinical data only and sometimes referral is made to prices of therapies for justification of the treatment sequence advised. However, the price of a therapy as such is just a single criterion and does not reflect the balance between effectiveness and costs associated with the application of that therapy. This results often in a restricted position of new therapies in the treatment algorithm. Integration of cost-effectiveness using the population-based variant of cost-effectiveness evaluations as an instrument in guidelines for Clostridium difficile infection may be provide better decision making framework.
