Decision Making in Health Care and Health Policy

9th of January 2024 @ 15.00 – 17.00h

By Judith Bosmans and Veerle Coupé

Veerle Coupé and Judith Bosmans are organizing a series on Medical Decision Making.
This will be a series of four tutorials.

In this first tutorial they will focus on economic evaluations as a means to optimize health policy, given budget constraints. Both trial-based and model-based economic evaluations will be addressed, providing directions on ‘when to use what’ and ‘how to do this’.  

The first tutorial: Decision Making in health care and health policy  

When: Tuesday January 9th
Time: 15:00-17:00h
Location: VU Campus

It is no longer possible to sign up for this tutorial.

In this series we will go in depth on how to improve health care and health policy decisions. How to determine the best decision when randomized trial data is absent? How to take patient preferences into account in decision making? And how to measure these preferences? In this tutorial series, these different aspects of medical decision making will be discussed. The series consist of four tutorials.
