The DSU provides training on behalf of NICE. We have run events for the NICE technical team, appraisal committee members and those submitting evidence (manufacturers, consultancies and academic groups).


These courses have covered general issues around technology assessment and appraisals, the application of specific methods in areas such as evidence synthesis and the use of software for decision modelling.

For more information on our courses or events that the DSU could run, contact the DSU Programme Coordinator, Donna Davis.
