Advanced Modelling Methods For Health Economic Evaluation
Location: York (England), Sydney (Australia), Glasgow (Scotland)
Dates: 21-23 March, 23-25 July, and September (TBA)
This 3-day computer-based workshop is now being held in 3 locations:
- York, UK (March 21-23, 2007);
- Sydney Australia (July 23-25, 2007);
- Glasgow, Scotland (September 2007 — exact date to be determined)
This course is designed for participants who are familiar with economic evaluation and healthcare and who wish to learn how to use more modelling techniques. It is envisaged that participants will currently be undertaking modelling for health economic evaluation within pharmaceutical and medical device industries, consultancy, academia or health services. By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- develop and populate a decision model;
- populate a Markov model with and without time-dependent probabilities;
- make a model probabilistic to reflect parameter uncertainty and to run Monte Carlo simulation;
- present the results of a probabilistic model using net monetary benefits and cost-effectiveness acceptability curves; and
- assess the expected value of perfect information.
The course will provide an introduction to decision models including decision trees and standard Markov models. Greater sophistication will be added as building blocks over the 3-day course. This will include adding time dependency to Markov models, making models probabilistic, populating decision models using regression models, presenting the results of probabilistic models and undertaking value of information analysis.
Instructors for the workshop include:
- Andrew Briggs & Elisabeth Fenwick from the University of Glasgow,
- Mark Sculpher and Karl Claxton from the University of York, UK, and
- Ron Goeree from PATH, McMaster University, Canada.
