The All Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre (AWTTC) co‑hosted this year’s Health Technology Assessment International (HTAi) Annual Meeting, alongside Healthcare Improvement Scotland and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. The meeting was held virtually and was well attended by AWTTC colleagues.
The Annual Meeting supports the mission of HTAi to promote the development, understanding and use of health technology assessment (HTA) around the world, as a means of fostering innovation and effective use of resources in health care.
Nearly a thousand HTA professionals from around the world attended this year’s meeting for two days of workshops and three days of presentations. AWTTC hosted an exhibition stand and presented five posters:
Only Men Aloud, a Welsh male voice choir, performed at the HTAi Welcome Reception. A video of the performance will hopefully be available here soon!
The organisers estimated that attendees viewed over 4,250 hours of content during the conference. Access to the meeting resources has been enabled until September 2021. The 2022 Annual Meeting will be hosted by colleagues based in Utrecht, the Netherlands – hopefully we will be able to meet in person!
