Event description


Learn more about health economics. The goal of health economics is to quantify the level of health benefits in relation to cost for proposed new interventions. This will help policy makers make the often difficult decisions on which interventions to insure and which may be too expensive for public healthcare to fund.

This webinar will include an introduction to health economics terms and concepts; different types of health economics evaluations and their applications; an example of a cost-effectiveness analysis, and a description of guidelines used to assess health economics evaluations.
