The introduction of innovation into any healthcare system is a challenge that health providers, professional organisations and decision makers must face, in an environment of financial constraint.

The seminar on economic evaluation ("Economic Evaluation of Medicines and Health Technologies") offers the opportunity to understand how economic evaluation could help to inform better decisions on health policy in Spain, by sharing experiences with the United Kingdom. The UK is an established user of economic evaluation to inform healthcare decision-making.


The objectives of the programme are to transfer knowledge of the key aspects of economic techniques and tools applied to health and healthcare interventions, medications and devices and to provide an overview of the use of economic evaluation to inform decisions about healthcare at a worldwide level.
