Economic Evaluation in Health Care

Date: 21-23 May 2014
Event: Economic Evaluation in Health Care
Venue: Lancaster Conference Complex, Brunel University Campus, London

This well-known course provides a stimulating but friendly introduction to economic evaluation in health.  It is designed for people working in health care, with an interest but no training in economics.  Participants include managers, clinicians, policy-makers, medical writers and researchers from a wide range of commercial, public sector and academic organisations.

Content of the course

By the end of the course participants will have an understanding of how economic evaluation can be used to appraise health care interventions and to inform decision-making.  It covers essential theory and methods: how to cost health services, how to assess health outcomes, the role of decision modelling, and how to interpret results.  The course is run by experts from HERG, and teaching combines short presentations with facilitated small group work and opportunities for one-to-one discussions with the faculty.  A very popular element of the course is the final-day design exercise, in which participants work together to apply what they have learnt to their own areas of interest.

If you would like to discuss the suitability of this course for yourself or for colleagues, please contact Dr Joanne Lord ( ).
