EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS FOR DECISION MODELLING

17th - 21st July 2006 Vaughan College, Leicester, UK

This is a 5-day course intended for: 
(a) Anyone undertaking health technology assessments, including cost-
effectiveness analyses,
(b) Statisticians, with or without experience in meta-analysis, who 
wish to learn about Bayesian methods for evidence synthesis particularly in 
the context of cost-effectiveness analysis.

The methods taught on the course are designed to be compatible with the 
recent guidance issued by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence, 
requiring probabilistic methods in cost-effectiveness models. The course 
focuses particularly on Bayesian methods for evidence synthesis that can be 
integrated within a probabilistic modelling framework, and can be used to 
statistically combine evidence from a range of structures. The course is 
built around a series of examples using the WinBUGS statistical software.

Further details including online booking can be found at the course website:

http://www.hsrc.ac.uk/EvidenceSynthesis2006/evsynth_main.htm 

and from the Course Administrator Katrina Ford ([log in to unmask]

COURSE ORGANISERS:
Prof Keith Abrams (Univ of Leicester), Prof Tony Ades (MRC HSRC, Bristol),
Dr Nicola Cooper (Univ of Leicester), Dr Alex Sutton (Univ of Leicester)
and Dr Nicky Welton (MRC HSRC, Bristol)

VENUE:

COURSE FEES:
Course fees will cover workshop documentation, lunch, tea and coffee and 
the course dinner on Wed 19th July. You will need to book your own 
accommodation:
Student - £450

Industry - £1300
You will need to book your own accommodation. A range of accommodation will 
be available to delegates. Information will follow on registration.

PRE-REQUISITES:
- Applicants should have a good working knowledge of: fixed and random 
effects meta-analysis, logistic regression, and statistical interaction. 
- Experience with probabilistic decision analysis in cost effectiveness 
analysis would be an advantage, but is not necessary. 
- Applicants are expected to have downloaded WinBUGS prior to the course, 
and to have worked through the on-line tutorial, and explored the on-line 
BLOCKER example (Help_Examples Vol I_Blocker). NB you need to use initial 
values Inits2 for this to run.
