Short Courses: Statistical Considerations in Health Economic Evaluations

ISPOR 17th Annual Meeting
8:00 - 12:00, June 3, 2012

Course Description:

Adoption and diffusion of new medical treatments depend increasingly on robust analysis of costs and cost-effectiveness. During this course, we discuss design issues for the collection of primary economic data as well as statistical considerations, including the effect of distributional assumptions, univariate and multivariable analyses of data, sample size and power calculations, and estimation of sampling uncertainty for cost-effectiveness analysis. Examples will be provided to illustrate concepts. Participants should have basic knowledge of economic evaluations and statistics.
