As we face the increasing demands on healthcare, it is widely recognised that a key approach to tackle some of the healthcare challenges is to harness and further technological innovations. As technology has become integral to healthcare practices and uses, the aim of this 2-day workshop is to introduce evaluation methods that can be employed to measure and evaluate health technologies from both the technology and the use of technology perspectives. We focus on a broad spectrum of research and evaluation skills covering evidence-based medicine, quantitative and qualitative research approaches, relevant organizational theories and data analysis.
