An understanding of the uses and limitations of modelling is an essential part of the toolkit of any Health Economist who is involved with Economic Evaluation, either as an analyst or a receiver/user of economic analysis.
This module goes beyond the introductory sessions in the Introduction to Health Economics module and covers the full range of model types that are appropriate for use in Health Economic analysis (such as Markov models, transmission dynamic models and Bayesian approaches to modelling).
As a short course this module is taught in conjunction with Statistics for Health Economics 2 which introduces regression techniques and Bayesian statistics for use in modelling. Hence there are 8 days attendance in total, three days in December and five in February.
