Provider: Monash Institute for Health and Clinical Education
Day 1, ‘Introduction to Health Economic Modelling’:
A practical 1-day course covering the basics of health economics, health technology assessment and common methods used for undertaking economic evaluations. During the course, participants will gain an understanding of decision analysis, Markov modelling, life table analysis and Monte Carlo simulation for uncertainty and sensitivity analyses. The course will involve ‘hands-on’ exercises using Microsoft Excel. Participants will need to bring their own laptop computers.
This course is suited to people who wish to get started in health economic modelling, including those from academia, government and industry.
- Gain an understanding of the principles of health technology assessment
- Develop basic practical skills in decision analysis, Markov modelling, life table analysis and Monte Carlo simulation using Microsoft Excel
Day 2, ‘Health Economic Modelling in Microsoft Excel’
A hands-on 1-day course that provides practical skills in health economic modelling using decision analysis, Markov modelling, life table analysis and Monte Carlo simulation for uncertainty and sensitivity analyses.
Participants will need to bring their own laptop computers, and pre-install a free, trial version of the Excel macro ‘@RISK’ from Palisade Corporation not longer than 3 days before the short course. The software package can be downloaded from here: http://go.palisade.com/RISKDownload.html
Participants will build mock health economic models, progressively building on their skills throughout the day.
- Develop proficiency in decision analysis, Markov modelling and life table analysis
- Develop proficiency in Monte Carlo simulation using Microsoft Excel and @RISK
