Foundations of Economic Evaluation in Health Care – short course in health economics – 18-22 June 2018
Listing Overview

The 5-day ‘Foundations’ Workshop includes comprehensive coverage of all key issues in the methods and practice of economic evaluation. It is designed for those, new to the field, wishing to appreciate and appraise studies done by others, or requiring a foundation for more advanced study. It includes discussion of the main design features of studies, such as costing methods, health state preference valuation, integrating economic analysis with clinical trials and modelling approaches. Also, given the increasing demands for studies by health care decision makers, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK, there is in-depth discussion of official requirements and the perspectives of decision makers. The wide range of countries and work backgrounds represented among the participants provides an opportunity to learn from a wide range of experiences.

The majority of the lectures are given by Professor Michael Drummond and Professor Mark Sculpher. In addition there are a number of tutored practical group exercises, which provide the opportunity to learn by ‘doing’. The Foundations Workshop fee includes a complimentary copy of the brand new 4th edition of the best-selling textbook ‘Methods for the Economic Evaluation of Health Care Programmes’ by Michael Drummond, Mark Sculpher and others.
