Summer School on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) for Biomedical Engineers and Medical Physicists

Summer School on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) for Biomedical Engineers and Medical Physicists will be held at the University of Warwick, 8-10 September 2015.

Call for COST EMF-MED grant applications can be found here.

All the info regarding the School can be seen here: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/eng/research/systems/abspie/hta/

The 3-day school will teach the following topics:

Day 1: “Intro to HTA for biomedical engineers and medical physicists”:
The first day will provide an introduction to HTA and evidence based medicine methods and tools, a critical review to standard methods and why those methods provide limited information during the research and development of new medical devices and why particular attention is required in case of assessment of medical devices.
Day 2: “HTA of Medical Devices and eHealth”:
The second day will cover methods and applications of HTA for Medical Devices and eHealth.
Day 3: “Premarket HTA: how to inform the R&D with HTA methods”:
The third day will focus on methods and tools aiming to inform he research and development of new healthcare innovations. Those methods aim to guide R&D processes aiming to obtain the best possible impact.

This School is co-organized by COST EMF-MED, in collaboration with the Health Technology Assessment Division of the International Federation of Medical and Biomedical Engineering (IFMBE) and the University of Warwick. The School is coordinated by our MC Member Dr Leandro Pecchia.
