Assessment of proposal to establish the islet transplantation procedure as an NFC (2011)

The Department of Health NSW, on behalf of the Nationally Funded Centres (NFC) Reference Group, engaged HealthConsult to undertake a health technology assessment of a submission from the Australian Islet Transplantation Program (ITP) proposing NFC status for the islet transplantation procedure. The project involved a critical review of the ITP submission, a systematic literature review of clinical and economic evidence for pancreas islet transplantation, consultation with key stakeholders, and analysis of data on service models, service projections and service outcomes. The project commenced in March 2011 and was completed in July 2011.
