Workshop: Understanding health economics in cancer research

As part of its capacity building services, the Cancer Research Economics Support Team (CREST) is pleased to announce it will be holding a workshop at the Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation, UTS

This introductory workshop is for those working or interested in cancer research who may encounter health economics in research papers or policy documents, or who would like to consider how health economics may be incorporated into their own practice or research.

Workshop Program

Using a series of workshop-style seminars and exercises, the program will cover the following topics:

  • Health economics and economic evaluation in research: An introduction
  • Study design for economic evaluation in oncology research
  • Identifying, valuing and measuring outcomes
  • Identifying, valuing and measuring costs
  • Interpretation of results of economic evaluations

Participants in the workshop will receive course notes, including copies of the slides presented on the day, references used as examples throughout the workshop, and additional useful readings.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Participants will need to arrange their own travel to and from the workshop. CREST is unable to provide travel assistance for this workshop.
