Advanced methodological development for all types of health technologies, including pharmaceuticals, medical and diagnostic technologies and related products.
NICE Methods Guide and Technical Support Documents
NICE regularly updates its “Guide to the methods of technology appraisal” and the DSU is pivotal in assisting this process.
NICE also seeks to promote the improvement of health technology assessment methodology and the DSU has been commissioned by NICE to produce a series of Technical Support Documents. These documents provide detailed guidance on appropriate methodology for specific issues in health technology assessment and economic evaluation.
Other methods work
The DSU has also undertaken several pieces of important research to tackle specific methodological issues. Below the topics are broken down by year.
