Other disciplines involve knowledge on:
  • Health Technology Assessment, which emphasizes the form, function & implementation of health technology innovations and the organization & financing of healthcare systems
  • Pharmacoepidemiology, focusing on the epidemiological methods to study the use and (side-)effects of drugs in large numbers of people. Purpose: supporting rational and cost-effective use of drugs
  • Advanced statistics
