Free online HTA course starts 12th Sept

Our Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) - Health Technology Assessment: Choosing Which Treatments Get Funded – is running again from 12th September, so time is running out to register.

In this course four week, we’ll look at how healthcare organisations make decisions about whether we should have access to certain treatments, focussing on a key part of the information used to make these decisions - Health Technology Assessment (HTA).

The educators for this course are based in the School of Health and Related Research at The University of Sheffield and are experts in this kind of research, so you will be learning from people who are actively involved in HTA and in developing the methods used.

We’ll show you the process using animated videos and interactive exercises, and by looking at an actual completed Health Technology Assessment that went on to inform healthcare decisions in the real world.
