NIHR Health Economics GeCIP Workshop
A one day health economics workshop will be held on Wednesday 20th January 2016 at the Wellcome Trust in London as part of the Genomics England 100,000 Genomes Project.
This is the first event organised by the newly formed Health Economics Clinical Interpretation Partnership (HE GeCIP), which represents a collaboration between health economists at HERC, the University of Manchester, the PHG Foundation in Cambridge, and a number of other health economists both in the UK and around the world.
The workshop has three aims:
- To provide an overview of the work planned by the HE GeCIP group;
- To introduce non-economists to the methods that we’ll be using within this programme of work;
- To provide an opportunity for other researchers to start collaborating with health economists within the HE GeCip.
The workshop is open to all GeCIP domain members and staff in NHS GMCs. Scientists and clinicians involved in other GeCIP domains who may require health economics input will find it particularly useful to attend. To encourage wide participation in the workshop, places are limited to a maximum of two per GeCIP domain and NHS GMC. The full programme for the day is available here.
The workshop is free to attend thanks to funding provided by the National Institute for Health Research. However, delegates need to fund their own travel.
