A Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is a comprehensive document which consists of evidence to support the adoption and utilisation of medical technologies. An HTA includes clinical, economic, social and ethical information regarding technologies. These include pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and other treatment approaches. HTA is used to guide decision makers in their evaluation of new technologies. Decision makers include professionals from diverse backgrounds such as healthcare payers (government agencies; medical insurance schemes) and healthcare providers (hospital management teams; healthcare professionals). As a result there is an increasing need for an introductory course which will provide new users with a sound overview of HTA and its application.
