PROGRAM OVERVIEW


Key Features

  • Intensive three-day program
  • Theory bursts in lecture format to introduce and explain key concepts
  • Interactive sessions (small group learning and computer labs) to explore illustrative cases

Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to review and assess:
  • Measures of evidence
  • Cost-effectiveness analyses
  • Approaches to integrating social and ethical issues

Curriculum Details

Day 1: Clinical Evidence
Day 1 will examine the nature of clinical evidence. Participants will learn the strengths and weaknesses of alternative study designs such as randomized controlled trials and observational research and understand how evidence strength is graded. We will also review common measures of effectiveness used in the medical literature so participants can understand the outcomes that are commonly reported in health technology assessments.
 
Day 2: Economic Evidence
Day 2 will explore the idea of value - the relationship between cost and health benefit. Participants will learn the key concepts and designs in cost effectiveness analysis, how to perform a simple analysis, and how to appraise and interpret cost effectiveness analyses that are part of health technology assessments.
 
Day 3: Social and Ethical Issues
Day 3 will explore the social and ethical issues arising in the assessment of health technologies - why these issues are important and how they can be addressed. Participants will be introduced to methods for assessing stakeholder values and preferences through research evidence or stakeholder engagement, approaches to integrating ethics and social values considerations into HTA assessments, and the decision-making and appeal processes that can improve the fairness and legitimacy of HTA decisions.
