Health Policy and Technology launched by FPM and Elsevier

@HealthMed The Fellowship of Postgraduate Medicine, in partnership with international publisher Elsevier, has launched the first issue of a major new international journal - Health Policy and Technology.

The first issue includes a paper on the pioneering new Centre for Health Technology Assessment of Devices and Diagnostics within the UK’s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), and papers on e-health from the USA, India and Europe. 

There is also the first of a series of interviews in print, online and as podcasts, with international leaders in the field of health policy and technology, beginning with Sir Michael Rawlins, Chairman of NICE.

The next policy maker to be featured in this series (June 2012 issue of HPT) will be Professor Gonzalo Calvo, former chair of the European Medicines Agency Cardiovascular Working Party, and Chair of the European Association of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, which represents the national clinical pharmacology societies from the 29 established and accession countries in Europe and their ~4000 clinical pharmacologist members.
