Health economics plays an important part in the clinical research and knowledge translation phases of the research process, as well as having a role in health care prioritization and accountability. This chapter begins by introducing a conceptual framework which depicts the generation and implementation of research evidence as an iterative process comprising clinical research, knowledge translation, and engagement with key stakeholders. Secondly, key aspects of the generation of evidence through clinical research that impact upon decision-making are highlighted. Pediatric research poses unique challenges distinct from that of adult research and the history and complexities of research in this population are discussed. The third section of the chapter presents the role of economics within decision-making. The chapter concludes with ideas for further strengthening decision-making in child health.

Keywords:   conceptual framework, clinical research, knowledge translation, decision-making, child health, stakeholder engagement
