Driven by our strong commitment to professional training, we attend many major conferences, including those staged by ISPOR, HTAi, NICE and ISMPP, where we frequently present our own research.
We value ISPOR highly as an international forum for the discussion of new developments in health economics and outcomes research, as well as their application to both the bioscience industry and health policy.
We regularly attend ISPOR’s congresses in Europe, Asia and the US and aim to be active members of the organisation by sharing our research with other delegates in the form of posters, presentations and issue panels.
After each congress we condense our collective experience into a short report summarising the key themes. We also draw on what we have learnt to compile bespoke reports on specific therapeutic areas for existing and prospective clients. Please contact Matt Griffiths if you are interested in this complimentary service.
We consider the annual Health Technology Assessment International (HTAi) conference to be one of the most important global gatherings for HTA professionals to share their knowledge and experience with one another.
Please visit the Articles and Publications page to view and download our posters and reports from previous meetings.
Please contact Matt Griffiths if you are interested in receiving a complimentary report from the HTAi conference each year.
The International Society for Medical Publication Professionals is a key organisation for those involved in the medical publication process, with a membership spanning industry and agency workers as well as publishers and clinicians.
Costello Medical regularly attends the Annual, European and Asia Pacific Meetings of ISMPP. As the medical publications industry grows, we strive to contribute to the development of the field by sharing our own research at ISMPP on topics of relevance to the day-to-day practice of medical writing.
Please visit the Articles and Publications page to view and download our posters and reports from previous meetings. We prepare these reports following each conference we attend, which aim to summarise the key themes and topics from each meeting.
Please contact Danielle Sheard if you are interested in receiving a copy of our meeting reports, or if you would like any further information.
At Costello Medical we strive to be as knowledgeable as possible on the methods and processes of NICE, both to allow us to provide the best possible service to our clients and out of our own personal and professional interest. As such, we aim to keep up-to-date on the latest developments at NICE and we frequently summarise these developments and our thoughts on them in the form of short reports and commentaries.
NICE Consultation on Technology Appraisal Process 2018
NICE have recently consulted on proposed changes to their processes for technology appraisal. Given the potential impact of these changes on ourselves and our clients, Costello Medical has been following this consultation closely. Our thoughts and opinions on some key elements of the proposals are summarised in a short commentary report, which can be downloaded from the link to the right (viewable on desktop displays only). Please contact Matt Griffiths if you are interested in discussing this report or the proposed changes at NICE more broadly.
NICE Annual Conference
We regard the NICE Annual Conference to be one of the best places to learn about the changing health technology assessment arena in the UK, and really value the opportunity to hear about the latest changes directly from NICE themselves.
Following the conference we summarise the key themes and the most contentious topics into a short report, which can be downloaded from the Articles and Publications page. Please contact Matt Griffiths if you are interested in being sent a complimentary report from the NICE conference each year.
