Health economics evidence is a key element in much health services research and particularly in health technology assessments. Identifying economic evidence to inform such research can involve searches in a range of databases and using a variety of strategies. This study day, organised by the York Health Economics Consortium (YHEC), will include a ‘jargon buster’ session on the basics of health economics and economic models. It will also feature presentations about key economics information resources including the CEA Registry, and explorations of options for searching to identify data for economic models. With the closure of key economic evaluation databases (NHS EED and HEED) there will be a focus on how to identify economic evaluations from major bibliographic databases. There will be opportunities for hands-on practice.
