Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Course

The course alternates each year between an online format and an on-campus short-course. 
In 2019 the course will be delivered on-campus in a short-course format in Semester 2, during mid-semester break in September.

Each year the School of Public Health, University of Adelaide offer a course in Health Technology Assessment.

The course takes a broad view of the assessment of health technologies including medical devices, tests, pharmaceuticals and public health interventions. Emphasis is placed on learning methods to assess the safety, effectiveness, cost effectiveness and ethical considerations associated with the introduction of these health interventions, and of translating the findings into health policy and clinical practice.

Attention is also given to the diffusion of technological innovations within their social, cultural and ethical context, to horizon scanning, evaluation of diagnostic tests and disinvestment of technologies. The course contains a mixture of lectures, small group activities and practicals.
