Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is an absurd one.
Voltaire (1694 - 1778)

As a society we have to accept that rigorous evaluation of a new treatment is essential... Skipping this step may seem like a compassionate act, but it can have devastating consequences.
David Eddy, "New York Times," April 17, 1999

The Health Technology Assessment Unit was established by the MUHC in January 2001. Its purpose is to advise the hospital in difficult resource allocation decisions, using an approach based on sound, scientific technology assessments and a transparent, fair decision-making process. Consistent with its role within a university health centre, it will publish its research when appropriate, and contribute to the training of personnel in the field of health technology assessment.
