Background

Health economics methods are employed to provide evidence on the cost effectiveness and budget impact of health technologies and health and social care interventions. This evidence forms part of the multidisciplinary Health Technology Assessment (HTA) process in Ireland and internationally, which is central to informing resource allocation decision-making by policy makers and practitioners within and across health systems. Moreover, given the growth in applied health economic evaluation studies internationally, evidence synthesis methods are increasingly employed to critically appraise and synthesise the health economic evidence base. To this end, there exists a need to educate relevant stakeholders on the conduct of evidence synthesis in the context of health economic evaluation.

Aim

This workshop aims to firstly, provide an introduction to the methods of health economic evaluation, and secondly, to provide guidance on the conduct of systematic reviews of health economic evaluation studies.
