CREST workshops in 2011

Understanding Health Economics

As part of the Cancer Australia Support for Clinical Trials program the Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE) has been contracted to establish a dedicated Cancer Research Economics Support Team (CREST) to provide high quality, expert advice and support to existing and new Multi-site Collaborative National Cancer Clinical Trials Groups. Capacity building is a key component of the services available from CREST, and we are pleased to announce a number of CREST workshops to be held in 2011.

  1. MOGA - Understanding health economics in medical oncology Research
    Wednesday 10th August 2011, 9.30am to 12.30pm

Participants to the workshop will receive a book of course notes, which will include copies of the slides presented on the day, references used as examples throughout the workshop, and additional useful readings.

  3. Grant Writing - How to include economic evaluation in your trial proposal
    Mon 12th – Tuesday 13th December, 2011
    This workshop is for those with an idea for a protocol which may have an economic evaluation component, and who want to prepare a proposal or grant application for early 2012 (eg NHMRC or ARC grants). Individuals will need to submit a one-page structured abstract of their idea prior to the workshop. This will then be worked on during the workshop, with the aim that by the end of the two days each idea will be developed enough to be incorporated into a grant proposal.

 These workshops provide a fantastic opportunity for Cancer Collaborative Trials Group members to learn more about why and how health economics can be incorporated into cancer research.  If you have any questions or would like more information about any of the above workshops, please contact Alison Pearce on or by phone (02) 9514 4742.
