RTI-HS Leading Experts, Brett Hauber and Reed Johnson to conduct pre-conference short course at the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Medical Decision Making in Toronto, October 24, 2010
posted 2010.10.20

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC -- Brett Hauber, Senior Economist and Global Head of Health Preference Assessment and Reed Johnson, Distinguished Fellow and Principal Economist will teach a short course on Sunday, October 24 from 2:00 pm-5:30 pm.

The short course, titled "Quantifying Benefit-Risk Tradeoff Preferences for Regulatory Decision Making" will focus on choice-format conjoint methods to quantify patient and physician benefit-risk tradeoffs.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Assess methods for systematically quantifying and comparing the benefits and risks of medical interventions, including professional judgment of nominal risk and benefit incidence rates
  • Compare weighted risk and benefit incidence rates, where each outcome is assigned a relative importance or preference weight; and comparing actual risk exposures with maximum acceptable risks using stakeholders' stated willingness to accept risk to achieve specified therapeutic benefits

For more information about the short course or to arrange a meeting with them, please contact Brett or Reed.
