Dollars and Sense: Health Economic to Inform Policy Decisions, CSEB Webinar

Online
October 16 & 17, 2014

In brief, the application of health economics reflects a universal desire to obtain maximum "value for money" in the context of decisions that affect the health and wellness of a population. This webinar aims to provide an introduction to health economics with a focus on practical approaches to identifying and using health and economic data to answer big-picture health policy questions. This webinar will offer practical examples to reinforce understanding and identify ways for researchers to communicate complicated economic data in a more effective way.
