Title: Economic evaluations supporting the implementation of a sustainable pharmacy service


Overview: Health service researchers must focus on implementing services that optimize both the interests of pharmacists and payers in a sustainable way. In this context, the masterclass will deal with financial planning tools to analyse and support the business decision from the provider perspective, as well as with methods to assess the cost-effectiveness of the service from the healthcare system perspective.
