Interventional Studies as Service Evaluations workshop
June 4 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm BSTFree
The School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR), University of Sheffield, are currently taking ‘Expressions of Interest (EoI)’ for the Interventional Studies as Service Evaluations workshop, taking place in Sheffield on Tuesday 4th June 2019 from 9:30am until 4:30pm.
The event is an opportunity for researchers and commissioners who work in the area of healthcare evaluation and/or commissioning to come together to discuss and debate what types of ‘evidence’ can be obtained from service evaluations as an alternative to research. This includes the associated benefits and negative consequences of taking these alternative approaches.
Workshop highlights include taught sessions on understanding and distinguishing the differences between service evaluations and research, statistical methods for assessing effectiveness alongside non-randomised study designs (ability to randomise being a key difference associated between research and service evaluations), and methods for assessing value for money (ranging from formal economic evaluation methodologies to cost-only analyses). These taught sessions will culminate in a structured group discussion related to using service evaluations relative to research as a vehicle for assessing effectiveness and cost-effectiveness, as well as commissioners’ and researchers’ perspectives on why one approach might be chosen over the other.
To register your interest in attending the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by the 10th May 2019, with ‘EoI – Service Evaluation workshop’ in the subject line of your email.
