Introduction to Pharmacoeconomics

8:00 AM–5:00 PM May 19, 2018 (US - Eastern)

Room: 314-315 (Level 300)


This course is designed to teach clinicians and new researchers how to incorporate pharmacoeconomics into study design and data analysis. Participants will first review the basic principles and concepts of health economic evaluations, then discuss how to collect and calculate the costs of different alternatives, determine the economic impact of clinical outcomes, and how to identify, track, and assign costs to different types of health care resources used. Different pharmacoeconomic models and techniques will be demonstrated, including cost-minimization, cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, cost-utility, and budget impact analysis. Decision analysis, sensitivity analysis, and discounting will all be demonstrated and practiced.
