HEDS professor Eva Kaltenthaler was our latest esteemed colleague to deliver a ScHARR Inaugural Lecture where she described her work as a systematic reviewer undertaking technology appraisals for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Professor Kaltenthaler discussed the process used to assess new treatments for use in the NHS and changes to research methods in systematic reviewing as well as changes to the NICE technology appraisal process over the past 15 years. She outlined her involvement in a range of research projects exploring the methods used in technology appraisal. Professor Kaltenthaler also briefly outlined her earlier work using mixed methods research to study hygiene behaviour.
