Survival of the fittest (health economic model)
To make up for the fact that we’ve missed a couple of slots over the past months in our seminar series, we thought we organised a more structured event.
So, our next seminar will in fact be a workshop and will be held at UCL on 7 July from 1.30pm to 4.30pm, room 102 on the first floor of 1-19 Torrington Place.
The title is “Statistical issues in modelling survival data for health economic evaluation” and we have an exciting line-up of speakers.
Nick Latimer will first introduce the general issue of statistical modelling of survival data and extrapolation in health economics and then discuss the interesting issue of treatment switching. Chris Jackson will present and discuss flexible methods to perform extrapolation of survival data and the combination of evidence. Finally, Patricia Guyot will then discuss methods to reconstruct individual survival data from published survival curves.
The tentative timetable of the event is the following:
- 1.30-1.50: Nick Latimer (HEDS, ScHARR. University of Sheffield): Standard survival analysis techniques - methods typically used in HTA
- 1.50-2.35: Chris Jackson (MRC Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge): Improving long-term survival estimation through flexible models, combining evidence and accessible software
- 2.35-2.50: Coffee break
- 2.50-3.15: Nick Latimer (HEDS, ScHARR. University of Sheffield): Methods for adjusting survival estimates in the presence of treatment switching
- 3.15-4.00: Patricia Guyot (Mapi, Utrecht, Netherlands): Reconstructing Kaplan Meier data from published survival curves
- 4.00-4.30: Discussion
