UPDATE: We were honoured to host Prof Peter Neumann's webinar on the 2nd Panel on Cost-Effectiveness in Health and Medicine last Thursday.
Peter gave a very interesting presentation on the recommendations of the Panel and some of the controversies and challenges faced in formulating these recommendations, followed by an engaging discussion with webinar attendees on the recommendations and what they mean for those of us doing cost-effectiveness analyses in the health care sector.
For those you who were unable to attend (or who want to see it again), a recording of the webinar is now available. This is free to ISPOR (NZ) members and paid webinar attendees, and $25 for non-members. Please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like the link.
