Cost-effective analysis (CEA) can be a solution to inform policy advisors and decision makers. Attendees of this workshop will become informed consumers of CEA studies and will be able to assess claims of ‘cost-effectiveness’ and the ‘value’ of certain policies. The concept of ‘value’ in healthcare is paramount when trying to harmonize budgets and expenditures. CEA studies speak to the value of new treatments, interventions and programs in healthcare. This session will introduce the main concepts of cost effectiveness analysis and provide key principles for using the results.
