Consultation on HE methods for European HTA organisations

Public consultation of  EUnetHTA’s draft methodological guideline “Methods for health economic evaluations” is open until 16th December 2014.  From their website:

“EUnetHTA´s methodological guidelines are targeted to the needs of health technology assessors in the EUnetHTA member organisations. Their recommendations focus on the methodological challenges encountered while performing relative effectiveness assessments of pharmaceuticals and other health technologies.

Secondary target groups of the guidelines are decision-makers, researchers, industry or other stakeholders as the guidelines inform on what is deemed
  • good quality of study design and conduct,
  • less biased, reliable and applicable evidence,
  • good reporting and synthesis of evidence,
  • and good practice of statistical data analysis in the context of HTA.”
