This course will help you understand how and why choices about drugs and treatments have been made. It may inspire you to think about a career in healthcare, local decision-making or academia.

Continuing Professional Development

If you are currently working in healthcare, pharmaceuticals or medical research then this course could be a valuable addition to your continuing professional development and will help you to better understand decision making and economics in your field of practice.

You can prove your CPD by upgrading the course and earn a certificate that details the hours you spent learning, what the course covered and the course start date.

Take your understanding further: Learn about Measuring and Valuing Health

The HTA process depends on many sources of information coming together to provide an assessment. Take your knowledge of healthcare decision-making further and learn about health outcomes with our previous course Measuring and Valuing Health.

This course looks more closely into one of the factors which helps to inform healthcare decisions. Costs are fairly straightforward to calculate but what about the benefits? How do we measure and value these benefits?

You’ll learn about how patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are developed and implemented. You’ll also learn what quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) are and how they are generated including describing health states and how they can be valued through methods such as Time Trade Off. Sign up here.

Study with the University of Sheffield

You may even wish to take your learning further, with the University of Sheffield’s Masters degrees and short courses in areas such as health economics, public health and international healthcare technology assessment.
