AHRQ to cosponsor ISTAHC 2001

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is cosponsoring the 2001 conference of the International Society of Technology Assessment in Healthcare (ISTAHC), which will be held in Philadelphia, June 3-6, 2001. The conference will be hosted by ECRI, an AHRQ Evidence-based Practice Center.

The conference will feature three plenary sessions, a variety of special theme sessions, and several preconference meetings. The preconference meetings will include three technology assessment primers, a session on technology assessment and patient access, and a workshop presented by the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization that will feature participants from many Latin American and Caribbean countries. An innovative postconference program will feature an intermediate level interactive technology assessment workshop focused on training for those who practice technology assessment or train others. The postconference workshop is being cosponsored by ECRI and the Leonard Davis Institute for Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania.

The deadline for early registration is March 31, 2001.
