Economic Evaluation in Health Care
09-11 November 2016

Three day course at The Hamilton Centre, Brunel University London

This three day course provides an in-depth introduction to methods, techniques and use of economic evaluation in health care for those with no, or little, previous training in health economics. It draws on the experience of the Health Economics Research Group and the teaching combines formal presentations, group work on case studies and opportunities for one-to-one discussions with the faculty.

The aim of the course is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary:
•	to understand, review and use published economic evaluation studies;
•	to be familiar with the key issues in setting up an economic evaluation study;
•	to be able to identify the main data requirements for economic assessment of health care technologies.

To foster a multi-disciplinary environment in which participants from different professional backgrounds and the public and private sectors can interact.

On completion of the course, participants would be expected to be able:
•	to identify the various types of economic evaluation together with their data requirements and informational content;
•	to understand the alternative measures of outcome used in economic evaluation, including the concept of quality adjusted life years (QALYs);
•	to appreciate the principles and practice involved in undertaking a cost analysis;
•	to understand the role of trials and of models in economic evaluation;
•	to appreciate how to deal with uncertainty in economic evaluation;
•	to be able to tackle the practical and methodological tasks associated with designing and planning an economic evaluation;
•	to use cost-effectiveness data, including cost per QALY, to inform policy decisions.

The course focuses on the English NHS context and the requirements of NICE, but it has proved relevant and accessible to participants from the other UK nations and overseas.
