This course is designed to go beyond the first principles of economic evaluation. Its focus is the development, extension and application of the main issues and techniques for economic evaluation.
The material covered by the course includes an in-depth coverage of the components of economic evaluation, such as cost data collection analysis, outcome data analysis, health state valuation in general and discounting issues.
Alternative methods for economic evaluation and the relevant frameworks will be discussed with case studies and policy applications.
The module includes inter-active practical sessions on decision modelling, cost-effectiveness acceptability curves and missing data analysis, in which 'hands-on' application and analysis of alternative approaches used in economic evaluation will be demonstrated with full discussion of the advantages and appropriateness of the alternative techniques. The module concludes with a group-based critical appraisal exercise to consolidate the concepts covered during the week.
