The NIHR Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme celebrated its impact in clinical and public health research by holding a milestone conference on 9-10 October 2013 in central London.
The emphasis of the conference was to:
  • Examine the impact, nationally and internationally of the programme in clinical effectiveness research
  • Consider the influence of the HTA Programme within the NHS and on UK clinical research
The event celebrated the contribution made by the HTA Programme to the NIHR mission to improve the health and wealth of the nation. It raised the national and international awareness and prestige of the programme, its projects and published research findings.

In conjunction with the conference The Lancet published a themed issue on clinical effectiveness research.
