On 22 June 2017, the European Brain Council (EBC) released the Value of Treatment (VoT) 2015-2017 Research Project Policy White Paper with case studies findings and policy recommendations, at a final conference organized under the auspices of the Maltese EU Presidency.
Starting from case studies data analysis covering a wide range of brain disorders and ending in evidence-based policy recommendations, the project assesses the treatment gap and the cost of non- or inadequate treatment. Our findings recommended early intervention and the promotion of a holistic healthcare approach (as opposed to fragmentation in separate medical “silos”), addressed combined research and public health policy gaps and opportunities at the EU level, and translated the findings into policy recommendations.
The full report of the conference is available here.
All Value of Treatment details and published documents are available in the VOT Section of the website.
