Evaluating Public Health Interventions using Economic and Epidemiologic Methods

This new one-day short course run by Health Economics Unit providing an overview of how cost-effectiveness analyses and cost-benefit analysis can be used to evaluate public sector inventions, including screening and prevention programs, and ways to improve access to health care.

The course will consist of short lectures and case studies and is designed for policy makers and researchers with a focus on public sector. Epidemiological and economic methods including the key concepts of valuing outcomes using DALYs, QALYs and willingness to pay, impact of time preference on evaluation, and quantifying outcomes using Markov models, life tables and simulation models will be covered in the course accompanied by case examples of evaluation of public health programs.

There are no formal prerequisites, although we recommend that participants have previously attended our Introduction to Cost Effectiveness Analysis in Health course.
