A three-day advanced course in methods for health economic evaluation. The course covers study design principles, techniques for analysing costs and outcomes, introduction to decision models, Markov modelling and its applications. Each module is re-enforced by exercises in STATA and TreeAge Pro.
The course is designed for those who are or will be engaged in undertaking cost-effectiveness analysis, or for those who need a more detailed understanding of the current methods of health economic evaluation to assist in using the evidence from economic evaluations to inform resource allocation decisions. This will include researchers, consultants and those assessing economic evaluations from public, commercial and academic organisations.
There are no formal prerequisites, but participants should have an appreciation of the concepts of health economic evaluation and should be familiar with introductory statistics. The course will be ‘hands-on’, and participants will be expected to bring a laptop computer (and mouse). Software will be supplied as part of the course materials.
