11th Health Technology Assessment (HTA) symposium online

The 11th symposium HTA of the German Agency for Health Technology Assessment at The German Institute for Medical Documentation and Information (DAHTA at DIMDI) will take place on the 17th and 18th of March 2011 in Cologne. The theme of this year’s event deals with the association between theory and practice: Theoretical practice – practical theory?

HTA-experts give answers to this question regarding benefit assessment, decision-making, prioritisation, rationalisation, cost development and further topics.

In four sessions examples of HTA-reports are discussed: Individual health services (IgeL), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults, burnout and on workplace health promotion.

The workshop “HTA and impact” offers the chance to find answers, to exchange experiences, for discussion and for the development of solutions regarding this topic.
