RETP Launches New Online Module – Health Economics: Application to Research

Economic evaluation is a necessary inclusion in translation of health research to policy.

An understanding of the resource implications enables budget allocation in a climate of constrained resources.

This module is targeted to researchers, but the implications of resource use have relevance for everyone working in health care.

On completion of this online training, participants will be able to:

  • Define health economics and understand its breadth and the context of economic evaluation
  • Identify the necessary components in calculating cost-effectiveness
  • Recognise the economic translation requirements in a research proposal

This module will take approximately 3 hours to complete.
