he Health Technology Assessment Division (HTAD) of the IFMBE is pleased to announce the Second IFMBE Summer School on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) for Biomedical Engineers and Medical Physicists: www.HTAschool.upatras.gr The 2nd Summer School will run the 28th, 29th and 30th of September 2017 in the University of Patras. This Summer School addresses early career researchers including PhD students as well as academics with a technical background, who are working on healthcare technologies, and moreover it is open also to the manufacturing sector. The aim is to provide theoretical and practical multidisciplinary training on HTA, focusing on Medical Devices. This will include methodology, modelling, mathematics, practical training and relevant case studies. Attendants will learn principles, methods and how to use tools to perform their activities, maximising the uptake and impact of their research outcomes. In fact, informing the research and the design of new healthcare technologies with scientific methods for early stage HTA will have a considerable impact on a number of important elements (i.e. cost-effectiveness, ethical issues) during the research process, when with small changes it is possible to achieve big results!
28th – 30th September 2017 University of Patras Patras, Greece
