Methods for the Economic Evaluation of Diagnostics Research Forum 2021
The Methods for the Economic Evaluation of Diagnostics (MEED) Research Forum brings together researchers actively involved in evaluating diagnostics. The event takes place annually and provides an opportunity to discuss and develop new research in this area.
We are delighted to announce that Newcastle University will host the third MEED Research Forum on Friday 24 September. This free workshop will take place online and focus on “The role of health economics in a global pandemic – lessons learnt from COVID-19”. The workshop is aimed at health economists and related methodologists who evaluate diagnostics.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented global attention to the role that diagnostics can play in clinical decision making. The workshop will explore the impact of health economics on diagnostic evaluations during this time. The forum will also explore how this research can continue to respond to the evolving issues of the pandemic.
Attendees will hear from keynote speaker Matthew Stevenson, Professor of Health Technology Assessment at University of Sheffield. There will also be an opportunity to pose questions to a panel of experts including: Professor Jon Deeks (University of Birmingham); Professor Anna Vassall (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine); Mr Simon Walker (University of York) and Dr Joy Allen (NIHR Newcastle In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operative).
More speakers will be announced, and registration details will be shared, in early September.
