Outcomes Measurement and Valuation for Health Technology Assessment – short course in health economics – 2-4 July 2018
Listing Overview

Revised and updated in 2014, the 3-day ‘Outcomes’ workshop includes new material linked directly to the needs of organisations, such as the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which make decisions about health care delivery and funding. The workshop covers the key principles of outcomes measurement and valuation as well as their practical implementation in health technology assessment. It focusses on the design, construction and application of a range of approaches to measuring and valuing health outcomes. The approaches considered include methods used in healthcare economic evaluation, such as quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) based on preference-based generic measures (e.g. EQ-5D, HUI); approaches used to ‘map’ from clinical and disease-specific outcomes to generic measures; and direct elicitation of preferences. The use of discrete choice experiments and subjective wellbeing is also considered. This workshop assumes participants have a basic familiarity with health technology assessment (HTA) and focusses on the role and utilisation of outcomes in HTA for decision making.

The workshop delivers a mixture of lectures and hands-on exercises. The majority of lectures will be delivered by Professor Andrea Manca, Professor Mark Sculpher, and Dr Andrew Lloyd. Tutors will also be available to support participants during the exercises.
