Two-part series: ‘Health Outcomes, Costs and Cost-effectiveness Analysis’

Health outcomes and costs are the building blocks of cost-effectiveness studies. The aim of this workshop is to provide an introduction to the fundamental concepts and analytical methods used in the analysis of outcomes, costs and cost-effectiveness studies. The workshop will be delivered in two sessions, and participants can attend either or both sessions without losing continuity.

Part 2:The afternoon session will cover statistical models to analyse costs or expenditure data (uncensored) commonly available in survey-based, randomized trials and administrative datasets. Participants will learn a variety of statistical models to analyze costs and health expenditure data, how to estimate and interpret the results, understand the strengths and limitations, and when to appropriately use them. It is to be noted that there does not exist a single best statistical model for all situations. Researchers, therefore, must find out the model that is most appropriate for their research question and data at hand. Previous knowledge of linear regression model is required. Having some previous experience with Stata will be useful but not essential.
