PRINCIPLES OF PHARMACOECONOMICS AND VALUATION OF HEALTH STATES
Economic considerations play an important role in decision-making on medicines, e.g. for pricing and reimbursement purposes. Insight in the strengths and weaknesses of the different economic evaluation techniques is needed for improved decision making on medicines.
The objective of this module is to gain insight into different preference valuation techniques and (pharmaco)economic evaluation methods.
At the end of this module, trainees will be able to:
describe the elements and scope of Health Technology Assessment (HTA)
execute a cost study and how to take into account the perspective in such studies
calculate the different effect measures used in pharmacoeconomics
describe the different approaches for valuation of health states and to interpret these values
conduct a pharmacoeconomic analysis including all relevant aspects(incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER), type of outcome analysis including differential timing, health outcomes models, and sensitivity analysis)
evaluate the quality of a pharmacoeconomic evaluation study
design a pharmacoeconomic study (extended version)
