Course Description

Understand methods for managing healthcare spending

Healthcare systems around the world are increasingly under pressure to fund drugs, treatments and other healthcare interventions. How do we decide which ones to fund?

One factor which can help inform these decisions is to compare the costs and benefits of treatments. Costs are fairly straightforward to calculate, but what about benefits? How do we know which treatments help patients most? And how do we measure and value these benefits?

On this course, you’ll learn how health outcomes can be measured and valued to make more informed decisions about where to spend our limited healthcare budgets.

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.
