Our new online Foundations and Advanced York Online Workshops will mirror the face-to-face versions of the York Summer Workshops which we have held for 25 years. Consistently fully subscribed, these Workshops are aimed at those initiating, undertaking, managing or interpreting economic evaluations of medicines and other interventions. 

Our workshops attract participants from around the world who work in academia, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, consultancy, health systems, government and HTA organisations.  These diverse backgrounds enhance the world-renowned expert teaching, benefiting our participants by also being able to share their own contexts with each other. 

 Online Foundations of Economic Evaluation in Health Care – 19-27 November 2020

The 7-day online 'Foundations' Workshop includes comprehensive coverage of all key issues in the methods and practice of economic evaluation. It is designed for those, new to the field, wishing to appreciate and appraise studies done by others, or requiring a foundation for more advanced study. It includes discussion of the main design features of studies, such as costing methods, health state preference valuation, integrating economic analysis with clinical trials and modelling approaches. Also, given the increasing demands for studies by health care decision makers, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK, there is in-depth discussion of official requirements and the perspectives of decision makers. The wide range of countries and work backgrounds represented among the participants provides an opportunity to learn from a wide range of experiences.

The lectures are given by Professors Michael Drummond, Andrea Manca and Mark Sculpher. In addition, there are a number of practical exercises, which provide the opportunity to learn by ‘doing’, and ample time for questions and discussion. 

During the workshop, participants will develop these foundation skills in economic evaluation:

  • Learn how to judge the quality of a published study
  • Understand how to identify, measure, summarise and handle cost data
  • Appreciate the different ways of valuing health benefits and their pros and cons
  • Learn how to structure a decision tree and to populate a Markov model
  • Understand how to collect and analyse economic data alongside clinical studies
  • Appreciate how economic evaluation is being used in health care decision-making Worldwide

Online Advanced Methods for Cost-Effectiveness Analysis: Meeting Decision-Makers’ Requirements – 30 November – 8 December 2020

The 7-day online 'Advanced' Workshop deals with advanced methods in economic evaluation in health care. It is structured around the analytical steps required to develop economic analyses to inform decision makers such as reimbursement agencies, hospital managers and formulary committees. Although many examples relate to medical technologies (eg, drugs, devices), the principles extend to other types of intervention like public health. Recent developments in the field are covered, including those relating to evidence synthesis, uncertainty and value of information analysis.

During the workshop, participants will develop skills pertinent to all key elements of economic evaluation:

  • Develop an awareness of the policy context for economic evaluation in health
  • Understand how to scope out and plan an economic evaluation to inform health service decisions
  • Learn how to conceptualise a decision-analytic model
  • Distinguish different types of effectiveness evidence and statistical synthesis methods
  • Identify suitable evidence on costs and health-related quality of life
  • Conduct and report an economic evaluation using patient-level from a randomised controlled trial
  • Build a decision analytic model
  • Analyse uncertainty and assess the value of additional research

The new online versions of the Foundations and Advanced Workshops will consist of:

  • Video-recorded lectures from world renowned CHE senior health economists. In total the workshop will include approximately 10 hours of lectures, split into ‘bitesize’ sections of about 30 minutes each. These will be available to stream until 8 January 2021.
  • Exercises relating to each topic to confirm understanding. These will involve conceptual work to prepare an economic analysis, critical review and spreadsheet analytic work.
  • An online forum monitored by CHE health economists. This will allow participants to post questions online regarding the lectures and exercises, and this will be supported by CHE health economists.
  • Video-recorded run-throughs for each exercise. Each exercise will be accompanied by a written model answer and/or video-recorded run-through to support participants’ learning.
  • Daily live question and answer sessions. For each lecture and exercise, there will be a daily live Q&A session, lasting approximately 1 to 1-5 hours, in which participants will be able to interact with CHE senior health economists, asking questions about the materials and related issues. Participants will be able to post questions and comments in various ways including live audio and video, online chat or through the forum. These sessions will take place at approximately 13:00 hrs UK time.
  • A final live Q&A session with CHE senior health economists. This live session at the end of the workshop will give participants the chance to ask questions relating to any area of economic evaluation.

The lecturers on the workshops will include (among others):

Professor Michael Drummond

Professor Mark Sculpher

Professor Andrea Manca

The Faculty and tutors come from the Team for Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment at the Centre for Health Economics, University of York.
