Our final masterclass of 2019 focuses on market access, with a particular focus on the newly launched Budget Impact Template from the NCPE along with the Rapid Review process and procedures.

Dr Aine Varley and Dr Lea Trela – who were involved in the creation of the Budget Impact Template – will be attending the masterclass along with Dr Lesley Tilson, Deputy Director of the NCPE to provide a practical, hands-on workshop walking attendees through the Template.

Topics for discussion in the masterclass include:

  • Budget Impact Template:
    • Introduction  – background, intended use, overall model structure
    • Worked examples – demonstration of the use of the Excel model
    • Troubleshooting
    • Q&A session with the NCPE team
  • Rapid Review: 
    • Common errors made in Rapid Review applications
    • Examples of a 5 page Rapid Review
    • What is used from the Rapid Review to determine whether a product will need to go through the HTA route
    • Oncology drugs versus non-oncology – how does the Rapid Review differ?
    • Pitfalls to avoid
  • Evolution of Budget Impact models
  • Data Sources & Data Modelling
  • Distinction between HTA & Rapid Review 

This masterclass will be of particular interest to those directly involved with Market Access in their companies, along with those who need a further understanding of the process, procedures and patient impact.
