THANKS FOR YOUR HELP !
Somatoform disorders are in the fourth place of the most popular mental and psychological disorders in Germany. They cause high direct and indirect costs. Somatoform disorders seem to be connected with high medical care utilization.
The aim of the present study is to calculate cost-effectiveness estimations assuming that every individual in Germany who is affected by a somatoform disorder receives psychotherapeutic treatment.
Based on numerous sources, statistical cost-effectivenss calculations were conducted for different levels of willingness for therapy, its outcome and duration. Exemplarily cost-effectiveness calculations were conducted for fixed values of willingness for therapy, its outcome and duration. In order to validate the results, an additional profit estimation with the aid of the Brogden-Cronbach-Gleser formula was conducted.
Assuming 5 sessions of cognitive behavioral therapy the benefits exceeds the costs 2.25 times. Assuming 10 or 25 sessions the benefits don’t exceed the costs. Between 249 992 and 444 696 people could be considered cured.
The high number of recovered individuals and their gain in additional life-quality is one argument in favor of providing more widespread care for mentally ill individuals, even if cost-effectiveness calculations turn out to be predominantly negative under certain conditions.
