We provide an introduction to decision analytic cost-effectiveness modelling, giving the theoretical and practical knowledge required to design and implement analyses that meet the methodological standards of health technology assessment organisations. The programme guides you through building a decision tree and Markov model and, importantly, shows how the results of cost-effectiveness analyses are interpreted.
Explanations of theory and methods are presented in bite-sized pieces that you can work through at your own pace. Below are links to the exercises and online workbook allow you to test your skills and understanding as you go along.
