9 October, 2021
The ISPOR Jordan Chapter, in cooperation with the Jordan national center for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Genetics (NCDEG) organized a training workshop titled " Health Technology Assessment: basic concepts and applications". The workshop took place on
9th of October for 3 consecutive days, and certificates for attendance were awarded to participants cosigned by the ISPOR-Jordan president Prof. Ibrahim Alabbadi and the NCDEG Vice president Prof. Mohammed El-Khateeb.
Prof. Alabbadi introduced basic and up to date concepts related to HTA and illustrated their importance when choosing among different healthcare Interventions. He further explained that decision makers should understand and chose from a variety of economic
evaluation techniques to determine which healthcare intervention is most efficient. Three other academic members from Jordan University, Dr Eman Hammad and Dr Remal Mousa and Jordan University of Science and Technology, Dr Sohaib Almofleh also talked
about costing, modelling and evidence-based medicine.
The workshop brought together members from different administrative positions in local health care facilities in the capital Amman representing both the public sector as well as private sector e.g. Jordan university hospitals, the clinical pharmacist
in charge and the head of tenders department, head and pharmacists of pharmacy department in NCDEG, key access managers in pharmaceutical companies, biomedical engineering department at Ministry of Health and members from Joint procurement department.
This participatory approach aligns with the capacity building mission of the HTA Jordanian National Committee developed by the Minister in the Jordanian Higher Health Council following the roadmap published lately to pave the road for the implementation
of HTA in Jordan.
It is noted that participants were granted 3.2 CPD points (for 8 hours actual attendance) from the Jordanian Pharmaceutical Association JPA for their participation in this workshop.
