NICE strengthens engagement with LSE Health

NICE and LSE Health will boost their research and educational activities aimed at informing health policy and practice across the UK.

NICE has announced it will work with the London School of Economics’ health division on how medicines, medical devices and tests are evaluated for cost effectiveness. In addition both NICE and LSE Health will develop educational courses for the industry and public sector covering the evidence and methods used in health technology appraisal in the UK. NICE will also support LSE Health students working on MSc dissertations in related fields.

The collaboration highlights a shared commitment to improving the overall health of the population through informing health policy and practice and in the development, advancement and evaluation of research methodologies.

NICE and LSE Health, which is one of the largest research centres at the London School of Economics and Political Science, already work closely on several initiatives. For example, NICE is a member of the Innovative Medicines Initiative-funded Big Data for Better Outcomes Consortium led by LSE Health.

Professor Carole Longson MBE, executive director of the centre for health technology evaluation at NICE, said: “This collaboration will enhance the potential of both organisations to deliver top quality educational events and research projects for the benefit of the UK and international healthcare systems.”

Professor Elias Mossialos, Director of LSE Health, said: “This is an exciting development that consolidates our long standing relationship with NICE and opens up exciting opportunities for future collaboration.”
