This unit introduces students to the application of decision analysis and modelling techniques for the purposes of conducting an economic evaluation of a health care intervention. Students are progressed through a series of practical exercises in modelling to enable them to gain some practical experience in performing cost-effectiveness analysis that assesses the value of a health care intervention. The following topics will be covered:
- Fundamentals of decision analysis
- Conceptual frameworks to determine an appropriate structure for a model
- Fundamentals of decision trees
- Fundamentals of Markov models
- Analysis of models using microsimulation
- Evaluation of companion diagnostics
- Sensitivity analysis
- Assessment of the value of additional information
- Reporting an economic evaluation
Throughout this course, TreeAge Pro software is used to create and analyse decision models. Students can expect to develop a basic proficiency in the use of this software during the course.
