Presented by The Northeast Institute for Evidence Synthesis and Translation A Collaborating Center of the Joanna Briggs Institute
Increasingly, health care practice and policy are being guided by cost utility, cost benefit, cost minimization, and cost effectiveness research studies. Yet, there is a dearth of evidence-based guidance on this body of literature. The Winter Institute will prepare researchers and knowledge professionals to meet the growing need for such evidence.
The Winter Institute is a program of the Northeast Institute for Evidence Synthesis and Translation (NEST) at Rutgers School of Nursing. NEST is a collaborating center of the Joanna Briggs Institute, a leading authority on systematic reviews of economic evidence and the only international organization teaching standardized methods for pooling economic data. The two tracks in the Winter Institute will accommodate researchers and knowledge professionals at both advanced and beginning stages of conducting systematic reviews of economic evidence.
