Cíle předmětu
This course provides an overview of the theory and applications of economic evaluation of health interventions. The course is designed to teach the core principles of cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, cost-utility, cost analyses and other forms of economic evaluations. Students will learn the advantages and disadvantages of each approach and how to apply essential statistical and economic methods for health economics analyses.
Výstupy z učení
At the end of the course, students are expected to:
- be able to understand cost and effectiveness measures;
- distinguish among cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, cost-utility, cost analyses and other forms of economic evaluations and know the advantages and disadvantages of each approach;
- understand the various perspectives that can be taken in an economic evaluation study;
- have an appreciation for some of the controversies in the field (for example, the costs of consumption in additional life years, productivity changes, discounting, prediction of health utilities, and the relevant analytic point of view);
- understand and be able to apply Markov analysis and other modeling techniques;
- be familiar with the statistical issues of cost-effectiveness analysis and a menu of approaches for evaluating the uncertainty associated with point estimates of the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio;
- be able to assess the quality of an economic evaluation study and be familiar with a number of the important studies from the cost-effectiveness analyses literature;
- improve soft skills such as communication, active listening, time management, teamwork and critical thinking crucial in problem solving in healthcare organizations, with care providers or in policy making.
