2-day course in Health economics modelling in R

Nathan Green, from University College London, will visit Karolinska Institutet and present a 2-day course in "Health economics modelling in R".

Where: Karolinska Institutet, Solna (see details in the program)

Dates: 9th-10th June 2022

Time: 9:00 - 17:00

Instructor: Nathan Green

Cost: No charge to participants

Course contents

The course will provide an introduction to health economics modelling and how to implement a range of models in R. The first day of the course will consist of lectures giving a grounding in health economics modelling for cost-effectiveness analyses from a Bayesian perspective. The second day of the course will consist of computer labs in which models presented in Day 1 are implemented in R.

The course is open to everyone with an interest in health economics modelling. The primary target audience is researchers knowledgeable about statistical modelling who are interested in learning health economics modelling. That is, we assume participants have prior knowledge of statistics but do not assume prior knowledge of health economics.

The opening session (from 9:00-11:00) will introduce concepts and is open to everyone without requiring registration. Registration is required (free of charge) to those attending the rest of the course. It is possible to register for just day 1 (concepts and theory) if one is not interested in applying the methods in R (day 2).

Further details can be found on the course home page that includes a link to the program.

The course is organised by the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MEB) and the Health Economics and Policy Research Group at the Department of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME). The organisers gratefully acknowledge support from Cities Partnerships Programme Funds.
