Economic Evaluation in Clinical Trials - 22-24 June 2011

Venue: University of Glasgow

A 3-day computer-based course

This course is a collaboration between Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment, Centre for Population and Health Sciences, University of Glasgow and researchers in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Overview:

The course is designed for individuals undertaking health economic evaluations in academia, consultancies and industry, as well as those involved in the design and analysis of clinical trials (statisticians and health service researchers).

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
*	Design an economic evaluation in a clinical trial appropriate to a setting or intervention(s), including multinational RCTs 
*	Analyse cost and effect data using univariate and multivariate approaches 
*	Estimate cost effectiveness (and net benefit) and the uncertainty surrounding the estimate 
*	Consider issues of transferability 
The course will start with designing a multinational trial and consider the issues of evaluating data from such a trial (what data to collect, how to value cost and effect, how to analyse the data, and estimate cost effectiveness) as building blocks over the three days.

Specific exercises will be conducted to illustrate the effect of distributional assumptions, univariate and multivariable approaches for the analysis of costs and QALYs, sample size and power calculations and their interpretation, reporting sampling uncertainty for the comparison of cost and effects.
Software and prerequisites
This is course focuses specifically on the analysis of cost and effect data in an economic evaluation alongside a clinical trial. Participants are expected to be familiar with t-tests and ordinary least squares regression.  Familiarity with sample size calculation for clinical outcomes will be helpful but not required.

The course will be 'hands-on', and participants are required to bring a laptop computer (and mouse).  The course will use STATA and enrolled participants who do not have STATA will be provided with a temporary STATA licence.  Familiarity with STATA is not necessary, but will be beneficial.
The statistical modules will involve computer work on exercises which will be built up over the three days. In addition, participants will be given the opportunity to bring along their own evaluations for further development during the course.
