· Compare and contrast the methods and data sources for evidence generation and evaluation that support EBM and HTA;

· Differentiate the processes employed for HTA across public and private payers in the US and other countries;

· Participate in the generation or evaluation of HTAs and the promotion of EBM that is scientifically rigorous and achievable; and

· Discuss the legal implications and market demands surrounding dissemination of evidence-based information that both decision-makers and other healthcare individuals need to see.

Target Audience:

This program will benefit individuals involved in:

· Evidence-based medicine and quality health care
