Table 2 Incremental net benefits for six willingness-to-pay values to prevent a fall for the total sample and by age subgroups

From: Cost-effectiveness analysis of a multifactorial fall prevention intervention in older home care clients at risk for falling

  1. aAll six NB regression models for the full sample were adjusted for age, sex, fear of falling, and previous history of falling
  2. bAll six NB models for age subgroup analysis were adjusted for sex, fear of falling, and previous history of falling
  3. A positive INB indicates that the intervention was cost-effective when compared to usual care
  4. INB incremental net benefit, Intervention multifactorial fall prevention intervention; CI confidence interval, P p-value, WTP willingness-to-pay
