Canadian Institute for Economic Evaluation Training Sessions

Marriott Courtyard

Return on Investment: Capturing the Economic Value of Community, Public Health and Social Services

The CIEE provides a unique training opportunity specifically for leaders working in the non-profit, public and community health sectors. Designed as an intensive four-day workshop and limited to 24 participants, these sessions provide a comprehensive introduction to economic evaluation, its methods, uses and application in real world settings. The course uses a case study approach providing tools, resources and practical illustrations.

The training will be of special interest to program sponsors and/or evaluators, executive and senior managers, researchers and consultants working throughout the public and charitable sectors. The training includes

* instruction on the key principles and basic methods of economic evaluations, including cost benefit, cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analysis;

* reviewing and assessing a wide range of existing case studies to understand how -- and how not to -- frame the economic evaluation of community-based services;

* practical ideas on how economic evaluation can be used as a decision-making and management tool to assist with difficult choices between competing options; and

* individual time with faculty to discuss how an economic evaluation might be done on a program of interest brought to the session by the participants.

A comprehensive binder with pre-readings will be sent to participants three weeks before the session to allow for adequate preparation. Space is limited to the first 24 registrants.
