THETA Rounds: A Non-Parametric Approach for Combining Evidence on Progression Free and Overall Survival Time, Caitlin Daly, PhD (c) and Nicky Welton, Ph.D
THETA Collaborative is pleased to invite Nicky Welton, B.Sc.(Sheff.), M.Sc.(U.C.Lond.), Ph.D.(Bristol), Professor in Statistical and Health Economic Modelling, MRC Health Service Research Collaborations Multi-Parameter Evidence Synthesis, University of Bristol and Caitlyn Daly, Hons BSC(McM.), MSc(McM.), Senior Research Associate (Statistician) at Bristol Medical School (PHS), University of Bristol.

Dr. Welton, research interests include methodology for evidence synthesis, and use of evidence in decision modelling. I also work on methods for Value of Information calculations that can be used to prioritise and design new research by comparing the expected benefit in the reduction of uncertainty in the optimal policy decision with the cost of a proposed new study. In particular, I work on examples of syntheses that provide the inputs to cost-effectiveness analyses that inform reimbursement decisions for health technologies by organisations such as the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

Since 2008 THETA has been hosting a lecture series THETA Rounds and inviting world experts to address various issues related to Health Technology Assessment, Clinical Research and Health Policy and Ethics fields.
