Evidence synthesis to support coverage decisions of medical technologies
Course information here
Pooling scientific evidence quantitatively facilitates its use in clinical medicine,
health policy, and health economics. Performing meta-analysis is a skill required from professionals working in the area of health technology assessment. The course is problem-based; theory, concepts, and methods will be illustrated with exercises. Participants will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to perform systematic literature reviews, meta-analyses, and network meta-analyses themselves. The last day of the course will highlight how the outputs of these analyses can be used
in health technology assessment.
