In light of increasing budgetary constraints, incorporating health economics into grant proposals can help assist decision making and strengthen a case for funding. This free online course is developed by the Health Economics Unit at the Centre for Health Policy. The purpose of this course is to give an overview of the health economics components that go into a grant proposal. We introduce the key economic components that are commonly required in a grant application, such as:
• Relevance of health economics components in the research project;
• Methodological plan for economic analysis;
• Guidance on requirements and sources of health economics data.
This online course also provides advice on planning the budget and personnel for health economics, and introduces some possible venues to find the most suitable health economists for a research project and involve them as investigators in a grant application.
The course is designed for those preparing or planning to prepare grant proposals for the NHMRC, ARC or other funding bodies where the proposal may benefit from having an economic evaluation or other health economics in assisting decision making from a pragmatic perspective.
