HTA102: Health Economic and HTA Research

Moderated by Prof Edina Sinanovic

Course Summary

Health Technology Assessment with a focus on health economics, which is one of the important components of HTA, covers a wide spectrum of activities related to the cost-effectiveness, affordability and access to medicines. The tools used in health economics may differ depending on the perspective, i.e. public vs private healthcare, macro vs micro setting, primary vs tertiary healthcare etc. This module takes a micro-level view of the health economics of a specific healthcare intervention (e.g. a new high cost option) rather than that of a healthcare programme (e.g. rolling out a vaccination programme). However, this module does incorporate all the fundamental principles of health economics so that you will be able to use these in many different settings.
