For the first time since 2019, NIHR Community Healthcare MIC will run a course on evaluation of diagnostics (Diagnostic Evidence Workshops) in person at St Hugh’s College Oxford from 22-24 June.
The event is ideal for clinicians, researchers, and those working in the diagnostic industry, guideline development, or regulatory affairs. Attendees can choose any or all of the days, and the MIC team will be running a competition for one free place for each of the days which will be open to SMEs.
Running sequentially, the workshops cover:
Workshop 1: An introduction to evaluation of diagnostics
Workshop 2: Cost-effectiveness analysis of diagnostic tests for development and adoption
Workshop 3: Statistical methods for diagnostic accuracy in medical research.
Taught by academic clinicians, health economists and statisticians together with external experts from NICE and the NIHR, these workshops aim to equip you with the necessary skills to evaluate IVD and non-IVD diagnostic technologies to support the development of evidence portfolios for regulatory approval (UKCA and the CE-IVDR).
Each workshop includes lunch and refreshments and is £195 to attend. You are not obliged to attend all three; you can attend one (£195), two (£390) or three (£585) workshops to suit your requirements.
