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 1: The morning session will start with an introduction to Economic Evaluation methods, with a specific focus on cost-effectiveness analysis. Participants will learn how health economists conceptualize and measure health outcomes for resource allocation decisions. The workshop will provide hands-on experience of using and valuing quality-of-life instruments, analyzing health outcomes data, and interpreting cost-effectiveness results in practice. Participants will also learn about challenges of using health outcomes, including issues such as: who should value outcomes; do different measures produce different results; and how private companies may use and misuse health outcomes data. No prior experience of cost-effectiveness is required. Having some previous experience with Excel and Stata will be useful but not essential.
