This is a 3-day course run by the Health Economics Unit within the Centre for Health Policy at the University of Melbourne. It aims to familiarise participants with the fundamental theories as well as computer-based methods and techniques that are routinely used in economic evaluation with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analyses. Economic evaluation has been widely used to assess new health care interventions and technologies and inform decisions about which interventions should be subsidized from available funds. In Australia, for a drug or a medical device to be listed on the PBS or MBS, economic evaluation is required to determine whether it represents value for money.

 

This computer-based course will cover the analytic steps in an economic evaluation, from methods for analysing cost and outcome data, developing decision analytic and Markov models, conducting sensitivity analyses and reporting and interpreting the results.

 

Pre-requisites
Participants should have a prior working knowledge of STATA software and an appreciation of the concepts of health economic evaluation. It is recommended that participants be familiar with common commands in STATA, introductory statistics and Microsoft Excel. The course will be computer-based, ‘hands-on’, and participants will be expected to have access to a laptop computer (and mouse) with STATA and TreeAge Pro installed for use throughout the course. Licenses for STATA and TreeAge Pro will be supplied as part of the course materials. Exercises for cost and health outcomes analyses are moderately technical with the use of numerous STATA commands; therefore, participants are expected to review STATA commands and familiarize themselves with the exercises before the lectures. If you wish to discuss your suitability for this course, please contact: health-economics@unimelb.edu.au
