    Abstract

    This commentary discusses how health economic techniques can usefully be applied to inform clinical and policy decision making in the aged care sector from two perspectives: firstly, in relation to the measurement and valuation of the costs and benefits of new and existing health care technologies and modes of aged care service delivery and secondly, in relation to the facilitation of autonomy and patient choice.
