UPDATE: The presentation is now available online. Read the original announcement below.
MCPER’s Nancy Lewis will deliver a presentation titled “Understanding Cost Analysis in Intervention Research” from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on August 24 in Room 324 of UT Austin’s Sanchez Building.
The following description is from a flyer for the event: “Funders are increasingly interested in researchers determining the costs associated with their educational interventions. This brief introduction to cost analysis will describe the differences between cost analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, and cost-benefit analysis to help you determine which type of cost study is most appropriate for a given intervention. The steps involved in conducting a cost study, including determining costs and combining them with effects or benefits, also will be briefly discussed, along with ways that the findings of a cost study can be used for decision-making.”
