Workshops in the Socio Economic Evaluation of Medicines

June to July 2015, York, UK


The York Expert Workshops, run by the Centre for Health Economics, University of York, have been running successfully for over 20 years. Over this period, decision-makers’ demands for information on the cost-effectiveness of health technologies have become more extensive and more sophisticated. At least seven European countries and several managed care groups in the USA now require formal submissions of economic data as part of the reimbursement process for medicines. Economic evaluation is also increasingly used internationally to support decisions in areas including public health and vaccines.

To keep pace with these constantly changing developments, the York Expert Workshops programme is updated frequently to ensure its continued competitive edge in delivering the most contemporary training to its participants.


To inform and promote understanding in key areas of quality of life assessment and health economic evaluation and to learn how to:

– decide whether a particular evaluation is necessary
– choose a particular methodology
– identify the data required and appropriate instruments for data collection
– undertake appropriate analysis
– communicate the results effectively


There are three different York Expert Workshop courses:

– Outcome Measurement and Valuation for Health Technology Assessment
– Foundations of Economic Evaluation in Health Care
– Advanced Methods for Cost-Effectiveness Analysis: Meeting decision-makers’ requirements

If you are in any doubt about whether the Foundations Workshop or the Advanced Workshop would be more suitable for you, please refer to the website of the university of York.
