Observatory Venice Summer School 2009
Innovation and Health Technology Assessment: Improving Health System Quality

The European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and the Region of Veneto would like to announce the next edition of their annual Observatory Venice Summer School which will take place on the island of San Servolo 26 -31 July, 2009.

Topic: The 2009 school will look at the role of innovation and Health Technology Assessment (HTA) as tools for improving quality and outcomes of health care. The course will have an emphasis on HTA, its implications and the associated demands as regards information, including identifying when innovation or new research is needed. It will bridge the gaps between generalist system planning; specialist HTA expertise; and the impact on practitioners of HTA led developments.

Target audience: The Summer School is intended for senior to mid-level policy-makers and more junior professionals who are making careers in policy and management at a regional, national or European level. It is targeting (1) general health policy planners and managers who want to set up and use regulatory or other systems to improve the performance of their health care system; (2) the producers of HTA who have to interact with mainstream planners; and (3) the professional groups and managers who are considering introducing HTA to inform decision processes.

All participants should be working in institutions with decision-making powers whether government or nongovernmental (e.g. ministries, directorates, national health institutes, federal committees), relevant provider or payer associations (such as insurance boards, hospitals or hospital federations, management boards) or public HTA agencies or professional bodies. Applications are welcome from all countries across the European Region and the programme will be tailored so far as is possible, to the mix of participants.

Accreditation: The Summer School is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) and therefore counts towards ongoing professional development in all EU Member States.
