Pharmaco-economic Wave two

Course Description

This course will introduce the methods of decision modeling for health care applications. It will discuss the role of decision analytic models for economic evaluation, modeling approaches, key elements of decision analytic modelling (probabilities, expected values), development of a decision analytic models and interpreting decision model outputs. This course will walk you through the theory and practice of state-transition (Markov) models, and structures used to represent events over time. This course provides Hands-on experience through the use of very efficient modeling and simulation tools using R computational software
