Health Technology Assessment Workshop
Maastricht University & St. John's Research Institute

The Division of Medical Informatics, St. John’s Research Institute, Bangalore, in collaboration with The Maastricht University, Netherlands, is conducting the “Health Technology Assessment Workshop” at St. John’s Research Institute between December 8th and 12th, 2014.


This mentorship training program targets researchers who want to start or continue their career in HTA / health economic  research.


The objective of the workshop is to support researchers in developing HTA research projects in India. Every HTA research project consists of a number of elements i.e.; design of an HTA study; choosing between a model-based and/or trial-based economic evaluation study; outcomes and quality of life assessment ; identification and measurement of resource use; valuation of costs; synthesizing costs and outcome; uncertainty and reporting. In this workshop, all these elements will be covered and lectured by international experts.  Next to that, during the workshop, several sessions on “Research Ideas” will be planned in which small subgroups will work on research ideas for each element of the workshop. The last day will be devoted to synthesizing the research ideas into complete research project.
