Economic Evaluation in Health

Monday 11 November | Tuesday 12 November | Wednesday 13 November

Australia faces significant challenges around the growing demand for health care, failure to meet these challenges will have significant negative impacts, both on system sustainability and health outcomes. Health economics tool-kits can be used to provide evidence on cost effectiveness and inform resource allocation decisions in health care.

Take a deep dive into Health Economics and Leadership in this three day workshop.You will take part in practical exercises and apply the concepts of and approaches used to measure the costs and benefits of health interventions.

Throughout the workshop you will have exposure to the tools used in economic evaluation and work with real-life case-studies to explore their application in practice.

This workshop is suitable for researchers and professionals involved in the health sector who would like to learn more about health economics and economic evaluation application to health including a focus on:

  • Costing approaches used in health
  • Measuring effectiveness and health outcomes
  • Modelling cost and outcomes
  • Health economic approaches to priority setting and decision making

This workshop covers the economic concepts and approaches used to measure the costs and benefits of health interventions and looks at how decision makers can use health economics to inform decision making and priority setting in their chosen field.
