Introduction to Economic Evaluation
December 1, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
This one day, hands-on workshop aims to provide an introduction to addressing these challenges. It is run by the NIHR CLAHRC North Thames Academy. The course is aimed at staff from NHS Trusts, CCGs and Local Authorities, who have limited experience of conducting economic evaluations and decision making analysis.
After attending this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to undertake your own simple economic evaluation of a local intervention or service, and be able to appraise other evaluations.
The course covers:
* an introduction to basic principles of economic evaluation methods
* how to assess the costs of an intervention/service
* how to measure and value outcomes of an intervention/service
* practical examples of economic evaluation analysis
* use of economic evaluation in decision making
This workshop is suitable for staff from NHS Trusts, Local Authorities and CCGs who need to evaluate local programmes or services from an economic perspective as part of their work. It is not aimed at academics and/or researchers. Participants should attend the course with an evaluation in mind that they may have to undertake. No previous knowledge of economics is required (or experience of study design and statistics), however an interest in economics and being comfortable with numbers is desirable.
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
Please note, a cancellation fee of £100 will be charged to both partner and non-partner delegates in the event of non-attendance without notice after 5pm, Wednesday 26th October 2016.
