The 5-day 'Foundations' Workshop includes comprehensive coverage of all key issues in the methods and practice of economic evaluation. It is designed for those, new to the field, wishing to appreciate and appraise studies done by others, or requiring a foundation for more advanced study. It includes discussion of the main design features of studies, such as costing methods, health state preference valuation, integrating economic analysis with clinical trials and modelling approaches. Also, given the increasing demands for studies by health care decision makers, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK, there is in-depth discussion of official requirements and the perspectives of decision makers. The wide range of countries and work backgrounds represented among the participants provides an opportunity to learn from a wide range of experiences.
