Bayesian Evidence Synthesis for Decision Modelling
This course is currently not scheduled, but if you are interested in future courses please contact the course administrator who will contact you once a date and venue has been set for the next course.
The methods taught on the course are designed to be compatible with the recent guidance issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and similar bodies worldwide, requiring probabilistic methods in cost-effectiveness models.
The course focuses particularly on Bayesian methods for evidence synthesis that can be integrated within a probabilistic modelling framework and can be used to statistically combine evidence from a range of structures. The course is built around a series of examples using the WinBUGS statistical software.
The course is intended for:
- Anyone undertaking health technology assessments, including in the context of cost-effectiveness analysis.
- Statisticians, with or without experience in meta-analysis, who wish to learn about Bayesian methods for evidence synthesis particularly in the context of cost-effectiveness analysis.
