The Health Technology Assessment Division (HTAD) of the IFMBE is pleased to announce the First IFMBE Summer School on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) for Biomedical Engineers and Medical Physicists: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/eng/research/systems/abspie/hta/
This Summer School will run the 8th, 9th and 10th of September 2015 in the University of Warwick and speaks directly to PhD Students, Researchers and Academics with a technical background, who are working on healthcare technologies.
The School aims to provide them with theoretical and practical multidisciplinary training on HTA. This will include methodology, modelling, mathematics, laboratory based training and relevant case studies (i.e. medical devices and not only drugs). Attenders will learn principles, methods and how to use tools that will be important to inform their activities, maximising the uptake and impact of their research outcomes. In fact, informing the research and the design of new healthcare technologies with scientific methods for early stage HTA will have a considerable impact on a number of important elements (i.e. cost-effectiveness, ethical issues) during the research process, when with small changes it is possible to achieved big results.
Up to 10 scholarship will be offered to cover the School costs. All the info are available on the web page.
The School has been organized and supported by:
