The Role of Health Economics in Innovation
This course aims to raise awareness of the role of health economics in the development of new technologies, and to help researchers understand how health economics can be used at all stages of the innovation pathway. It will also offer opportunities to gain insights into technology development through activities and discussion.
This workshop will cover:
- The basic principles of health economics
- The use of health economics in the development of technologies
- How health economics feeds into the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) framework
What you will gain:
A greater understanding of the role of health economics in the development of new health related technologies and in order to promote more efficient innovation.
