The Centre for Health Economics at the University of York is running a three-day course on Regression Methods for Health Economic Evaluation.
The course is a mixture of taught modules and practical exercises. It is intended for people currently undertaking health economic evaluations within the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, consultancy, academia or the health service who wish to learn how to use regression methods to analyse individual patient-level cost, health outcome and cost-effectiveness data.
Participants are expected to have a basic familiarity with the concepts of cost-effectiveness analysis, descriptive statistics and regression methods.
The course will cover the use of regression methods for health economic evaluation of both randomised and non-randomised data. In particular, the course will focus on the use of regression methods to analyse different types of individual patient-level data.
Throughout the course computer-based practical exercises will be used to show how the methods can be applied in the statistical package Stata. A half-day introduction to Stata and the commands that will be used on the course is available on14th March for those less familiar with the software.
