About PHSP's seminar series autumn 2017

Through the Health Economics Research seminar series, we will focus on health outcomes measurement and economic evaluation. Health outcomes measurement and valuation of health status are crucial in studies of population health, health inequalities, and in economic evaluation. Economic evaluation involves the comparison of costs and benefits from alternative uses of resources.

We will discuss how economic evaluation might be useful in health care. The three seminars are aligned and pre-knowledge based on the previous seminars is assumed. Articles assumed to have been read before the seminar, and questions to guide reading, will be provided via email on beforehand to facilitate learning and discussions.
