In this one day course you will learn about different approaches to prioritisation, how it works in practice in NZ, and then explore an online interactive league table with many different NZ and Australian health sector interventions. Whether you ever need to prioritise interventions as part of policy development work or if you need to consider the prioritisation work done by others, this course will help you.
- Limited resources, opportunity costs and why a society needs to prioritise health sector interventions.
- Prioritisation processes used in NZ (eg, by Pharmac etc).
- How does prioritisation work in practice in NZ?
- Use of an online interactive league table – for informing health gain, reducing inequalities, and cost-effectiveness (with worked examples around prioritisation).
Style of course
Teaching and discussion in a group of up to 25 people; we are exploring options around spending time in the computer laboratory for the league table part.
Who should attend?
Those wanting to prioritise interventions as part of policy development work (eg, when writing proposals).
Those wanting to better understand the broad issues around prioritisation and how to interpret the prioritisation work done by others.
