Event description

Description

Background:

Economic evaluations are a core part of analysing medical interventions. Making economic evaluations will give decision makers and other stakeholders insight into the costs, benefits and possible uncertainties when analysing a new medical intervention. Economic evaluations lead to a solid based decision about the cost-effectiveness of an intervention.

This workshop aims to equip participants with the knowledge about how to decide for a specific type of an economic evaluation and which types and sources of data you need. You will first get an introduction to health economics, the different types of economic evaluations, including their pros and cons, measuring outcomes and health related quality of life, how to undertake an economic evaluation, and how to use for example Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) for an economic evaluation. A practical example of an economic evaluation will also be done. By the end of each workshop, participants will be able to plan which economic evaluation method is most appropriate for their own project.


Developed by an experienced team member in conjunction with the Health eResearch Centre and Connected Health Cities programme at The University of Manchester, the workshop will provide an engaging learning experience that will give you the possibility to learn fundamental principles and concepts of designing and running an economic evaluation and the important role of health data. The workshop will be led by Dr Alexander Labeit, a Health eResearch Centre (HeRC) staff member, physician and economist.


Alexander has studied medicine and economics and has worked as a physician and economist. Alexander holds a PhD thesis in Economics from the University of Mannheim in Germany and has experience of investigating expansive survey panels for example; the German Socio Economic-Panel (GSOEP) and the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS). Alexander has worked at the University of Leicester as a health economist and analysed the uptake of different health check-ups. He has also worked as a research fellow at the University of Sheffield from 2015 to 2017 and worked in different areas of health economics. He has a special interest in discrete choice experiments. Alexander started at the University of Manchester in December 2017 and has conducted research in the area of discrete choice experiments, economic evaluations of clinical trials. He also measures the effects of a hospital staff training intervention using Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data - a database hosted by NHS Digital.
