PATH Workshop Summary
I recently had the pleasure of attending a two-day workshop entitled Introduction to Health Technology Assessment (HTA)1, put on by the Programs for Assessment of Technology in Health (PATH) Research Institute2. I was pleasantly surprised by the breadth of knowledge of the speakers at this workshop, and by the scope of information covered in a relatively short amount of time (this was the first time that the workshop was cut down from its usual 3-4 day length to 2 days). In this week’s blog I will share some things I learned about HTA, a highly-active and growing field with a substantial impact on healthcare.
