This course provides a broad perspective of the field of health economics (specific pharmacoeconomics), including a variety of subjects from views of the different stakeholders to more in depth methodological approaches, illustrated with examples and exercises.

Today's society is confronted with ever increasing health care costs. One of the factors is the cost of drug innovations. Diseases waiting for therapeutic solutions are complicated and multifactorial in nature. As a result, drug innovation has become even more complex leading to high tech and therefore high cost solutions. The question arises, what is the added value of such high cost innovations and how can it be determined when both benefit and harm are considered. Health economics, and more specific pharmacoeconomics, aims to provide a neutral scientific approach to this challenge.

This course aims to provide a broad perspective of the field, including a variety of subjects from views of the different stakeholders to more in depth methodological approaches, illustrated with examples and exercises.

You will experience an intensive programme covering the following topics: Pharmacoeconomic techniques; Study designs and methods; Critical appraisal of pharmacoeconomic studies; The (im)possibilities of the use of HTA and pharmacoeconomics in regulatory decisions; The economics of personalized medicine
