HTADS - Program on Health Technology Assessment & Decision Sciences
What is the Continuing Education Program on Health Technology Assessment & Decision Sciences (HTADS)?
Health Technology Assessment (HTA) has been defined by the International Network of Agencies for HTA (INAHTA) as "a multidisciplinary field of policy analysis, studying the medical, economic, social, and ethical implications of development, diffusion and use of health technologies (e.g., drugs, devices, surgical procedures, prevention techniques)".
In conducting HTA, the discipline of decision sciences has become increasingly relevant.
Decision Sciences (DS) is the application of explicit and quantitative methods to analyze decisions under conditions of uncertainty (e.g., meta-analysis, decision-analytic modeling, cost-effectiveness analysis).
In recent years, HTA and DS have become very important to health care policymakers.
In order to keep pace with these developments, the UMIT - HTADS Program was designed to provide excellent quality education and comprehensive training in the key issues of HTA and DS for anyone involved in the health sector.
The HTADS program offers te following short courses:
- 5-Day Certified Course (M1) Winter School in Clinical Epidemiology
- 4-Day Certified Course (M2) Introduction to Health Technology Assessment
- 3-Day Certified Course (M3) Modeling Approaches for HTA: A Practical Hands-on Workshop
- 4-Day Certified Course (M4) Causal Inference in Observational Studies and Clinical Trials Affected by Treatment Switching: A Practical Hands-on Workshop
- Certificate Courses in Statistics and Epidemiology
