Do you work with Market Access in Denmark, Norway or Sweden? Are you up to date with the common issues and pitfalls seen in economic models submitted to a Health Technology Assessment Agency (HTA) - especially pertaining to those most commonly used in connection with the QALY method?

The course is conducted in collaboration with leading Health Economists from York Health Economic Consortium – wholly owned by University of York (UK), a world leading institution within the field of health economics.
