Do you need to carry out an economic evaluation for health, but don’t know where to start? Join us for our introductory course on economic evaluation in health, which will be relevant to all researchers, policymakers, clinicians and other healthcare workers with an interest in this space. No prior knowledge is required.

You will gain:
