Early modelling: using models to inform drug and device development - York, UK

Thu, 03/06/2014 - 14:46

Economic evaluations are increasingly used as tools to inform decision-makers about the cost-effectiveness of health technologies. Such evaluations are often undertaken during the late stages of the technology development (i.e. around the time of product launch or, in some cases, post-launch). However, there is an increasing need for the manufacturers of the technology to appraise the likely cost-effectiveness of the intervention before making decisions on price and indication, as well as to inform the development of clinical trials.

Understanding Searching Techniques to Inform HTA, Systematic Reviews and Guideline Development

Thu, 03/06/2014 - 14:43

Literature searches are the foundation for high quality health technology assessment (HTA), systematic reviews, guideline development and other evidence syntheses. Developing search strategies to retrieve research evidence from databases requires knowledge of database features and skills in turning the concepts embodied in a research question into a search strategy. Search strategies have to take account of often competing requirements and the trade-offs which have informed their development may not always be easy to appreciate.
