York Health Economics Consortium offers a new health utilities training course

YHEC


Cost-utility analysis is a requirement for NICE health technology appraisals and is being increasingly used in other contexts and countries. Health utilities, a crucial component of cost-utility analysis, capture the relative change in health-related quality of life resulting from a treatment. As such, health utility can be a key driver of the cost-effectiveness ratio. Obtaining health utility values that are suitable for your economic evaluation, however, may not always be straight forward.

Our new one-day Health Utilities for Economic Models course, running on 4th July 2018, complements our Early Economic Modelling course. It outlines different approaches to obtaining utility values and provides an overview of the associated strengths and limitations across different contexts. Examples of the different approaches used in real-world NICE health technology assessments will be shared, with comments from evidence review groups, and we will take a look at the limitations of utilities and discuss how alternative approaches might be used in the future.

For those also interested in patient reported outcome measures more generally, York Health Economics Consortium is also running the Introduction to Patient Reported Outcomes Measures training course on the 7th March this year.

Teknomek’s PVC strip curtains are renowned for helping reduce hygiene risk by keeping differently graded areas within cleanrooms separate. The company has now extended this protection by adding anti-microbial protection embedded within the PVC to prevent the growth of bacteria, including MRSA, and further minimising the risk of cross-contamination. The anti-microbial curtains are built to last, with silver ions incorporated during the manufacturing process, providing significantly greater microbial resistance. The hard-wearing curtains suitable for use in temperatures of +38°C to - 10°C.
