Health Technology Assessment is a form of policy-informing research which is employed increasingly to inform evidence-based decision-making in health care. The primary aim of this course is to provide an insight into the basic concepts and methods in HTA production and utilisation as well as its application within the German health care system. Participants are subsequently trained in the main steps of conducting an assessment.
The course takes the format of blended learning, combining face-to-face and online activities. With the exception of the three compact seminars (6h each), participants do not need to be at the university. During the online phase the workload should be estimated at approximately 3 hours per day. Participants can obtain a graded certificate (6 ECTS points) or a certificate of attendance. The prerequisite for successfully completing the course is a minimum number of points attained by means of participation in the face-to-face and web-based seminars, homework and a final online exam.
The course language is German.
