Practical Methods for Health Economic Evaluation

A three-day intensive computer based course in methods for health economic evaluation. The course is designed for those engaged in undertaking cost-effectiveness analysis and resource allocation decision-making.

The course involves a series of modules to provide an overview of what is required to conduct a health economic evaluation. Modules cover study design principles, techniques for analysing costs and outcomes and an introduction to decision models. Each module is reinforced by exercises in Excel, TreeAge and STATA. The course will be hands-on and participants will be expected to bring a laptop.
