YHEC offers a range of training courses in health economics topics including economic modelling, evidence retrieval and information skills.
Health Economics Training
Many of our clients have problems disseminating the results of economic evaluations through their companies and customers, because of the detailed technical language and methods of evaluations. To improve communications, YHEC has developed several training courses for staff outside the field of economics and health outcomes. These can be provided on clients’ premises and represent a highly cost-effective way of improving the use of important evaluation results.
