Our online applied health economics courses are necessary to address the disparity between national and sub-national decision-making and between different sub-national regions or institutions. They aim to standardise processes and give practitioners the ability to apply the same principles to their individual decision-making. The courses in applied health economics will enable health care professionals to be well equipped to elicit the maximum value from finite budgets. They will help students understand why Applied Health Economics has and should become integral to healthcare decision making as well as understanding the underlying principles, methodologies and processes associated with this established and growing international discipline.

Populations are ageing and overcrowded; people are living longer and have longer term health management needs. More complex research, development and diagnostic capabilities are leading to higher healthcare costs, healthcare budgets are stretched globally so that applied health economics is now foundational and integral to healthcare decision making at every level. Its principles, methods and related processes are now applied internationally to varying degrees across public, private and mixed healthcare systems and to decisions relating to drugs, devices, treatment pathways and preventative health strategies.

This very practical Postgraduate Diploma and MSc will focus on direct application to current topics, case studies and processes relevant to the student’s own remit and country of practice. Unlike other courses, it covers the key disease area pertinent to Applied Health Economics for healthcare decision making.
