New e-learning series on Health Technology Assessment

EFNA’s latest e-learning series explores Health Technology Assessment (HTA).

Over two modules users can learn what Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is at national and EU level, how it is applied to healthcare decision-making and the viewpoints of the stakeholders involved in the HTA space. The modules cover how the uncertainty around neurological disorders influences current access disparities and how patient involvement can lead to more accurate decision-making in the value chain, ultimately supporting research and innovation and quality of life.

Patient-centred research can help close the gap between unmet medical and unmet patient needs. This course covers the ongoing revisions to HTA regulation at EU-level and the perspectives of payers and industry. You will learn about the progress of patient involvement in HTA processes in Europe, how we compare the USA, the additional challenges for rare neurological conditions, and the PREFER Recommendations on why, when, and how to use patient preferences in medical product evaluation.
