Ekers, D. and Godfrey, C. and Gilbody, S. and Parrott, S. and Richards, D. A. and Hammond, D. and Hayes, A. (2011) 'Cost utility of behavioural activation delivered by the non-specialist.', British journal of psychiatry., 199 (6). pp. 510-511.
Behavioural activation by non-specialists appears effective in the treatment of depression. We examined incremental cost-effectiveness of behavioural activation (n = 24) v. treatment as usual (n = 23) in a randomised controlled trial. Intention-to-treat analyses indicated a quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) difference in favour of behavioural activation of 0.20 (95% CI 0.01–0.39, P = 0.042), incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of £5756 per QALY and a 97% probability that behavioural activation is more cost-effective at a threshold value of £20 000. Results are promising for dissemination of behavioural activation but require replication in a larger study.
