Next to preventing injuries, it is of increasing interest to have some idea on the cost aspects of injuries and the prevention thereof. What does an injury cost in terms of direct medical costs and indirect (e.g. work absenteeism) costs? Additionally, how much can be saved when injuries are prevented, taking into account that preventive measures have certain costs attached as well? This chapter focuses on this relatively new concept for sports injury research and provides background for gathering and analyzing cost data related to sports injury (prevention).

Keywords:   cost effectiveness, bootstrapping, cost effectiveness plan, direct costs, indirect costs, sensitivity analysis
