This newly developed course is designed for clinical investigators, managers, researchers and others working in clinical trials. It will give participants an understanding of what is required to enable an economic evaluation to be integrated into a clinical trial at the design stage. No previous knowledge or background in economics is required. Additionally it will provide practical advice on how to find and collaborate with a health economist on the analysis of a clinical trial.
Each session will comprise of a mix of pre-recorded lectures (40-75 minutes per session), practical exercises to reinforce the presentations, and live sessions with tutors to go over exercises and to provide an opportunity for questions.
Access to course material will be provided two weeks in advance of the course. The lectures and practical exercises can be viewed and worked through at a time convenient to participants, although to get the most out of the live sessions (14:00 – 15:30 20 & 21 June), we recommend viewing the lectures and working through the exercises ahead of the session.
