Health economics covers an important and increasing part of the assessment of burden of disease. It has become an essential discipline to estimate the benefits and costs of health care interventions, as well as to explore how therapeutic innovations can be made available to physicians and patients in our quite constraint economic environment.
The EULAR Course on Health Economics in Rheumatology aims to present the key principles of health economics applied to rheumatic or musculoskeletal disorders:
Basic principles in health economics and health technology assessment,
Economic burden (Cost-of illness) assessment,
Cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analysis using model- or trial-based data for a better understanding of drug pricing.
The course will be based on interactive learning and practical training.
The participant profile for this two-day course is the following:
Young scientists working in the field of RMDs
Rheumatologists new to the field of health economics and with little experience in this area
