Advanced Methods for Cost-Effectiveness Analysis: Meeting Decision-Makers’ Requirements – short course in health economics – 25-29 June 2018
Listing Overview

The 5-day ‘Advanced’ Workshop deals with advanced methods in cost-effectiveness analysis for pharmaceuticals and other health care technologies. It is structured around the analytical steps required to develop economic analyses to inform decision makers such as reimbursement agencies, hospital managers and formulary committees. Although many examples relate to medical technologies (e.g. drugs, devices and diagnostics), the principles extend to other types of intervention like public health. Recent developments in the field are covered, including those relating to evidence synthesis, uncertainty and value of information analysis. In addition to presentations, the workshop includes a series of exercises focusing on the development and analysis of a decision model, and includes computer-based work.

In order to get the most out of the Advanced Workshop, participants should be familiar with Drummond et al. Methods for the Economic Evaluation of Health Care Programmes, Oxford: OUP, 4th Edition, 2015, and ensure they are familiar with the main functions of Excel(R).

The Faculty and tutors come from the Team for Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment at the Centre for Health Economics, University of York.
