CEspine is the acronym for the project Cost-Effectiveness of New Treatment Strategies in Spine Surgery: Evaluation of Patient-Based Outcome, Health and Social Economic Consequences in Denmark, which was conceived in a multidisciplinary research group during 2008. The project was granted 10.1 million DKK from the Danish Strategic Research Council and thus became a reality from January 1, 2009. With the support of additional funding sources, it is a 4-year project which aims at improving the existing regimens for treating spine diseases for the benefit of both patients and society. The partners in the project represent the three largest cities in Denmark; Copenhagen, Aarhus, and Odense and unifies health and social science in a multidisciplinary organisation with members from occupational medicine, spine surgery, health service research and health economics.
