We are pleased to offer this short course online. This course is for health professionals and health researchers who want to understand the basics of health economics and its relevance to the health service. No previous knowledge of economics is required.
The course is the starting point for anyone involved in the healthcare sector or in health services who needs to be introduced to the language of economics and economic evaluation. It explains how economists evaluate the costs and benefits of health interventions, and how health economics is used by decision makers in the health services and in the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries.
No previous knowledge of economics is required, but for those who do have some general knowledge of health economics, or economic evaluation, it will serve as an introduction to the Applied Methods of Cost-effectiveness Analysis course.
