University of Washington training on Cost-Effectiveness Analysis
This intensive 1-day workshop aims to prepare those with some experience in cost-effectiveness and health economics to conduct modelled health economic evaluations using extended cost-effectiveness analysis (ECEA) methodologies. Beyond providing researchers with the tools to measure equity and financial risk protection as part of their evaluations, the workshop will lay the groundwork for the formation of collaborative research teams between participants and the facilitators that will prepare policy-relevant ECEA analyses in the coming months and years.
