Efficient Health Economics Research Solutions
Consortium to Build Research Capacity for Efficient Health Solutions
Sponsored in part by CIHR's IMHA and by UBC-O Faculty of Management Social & Economic (SE) - Change Laboratory
Partnering with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the University of British Columbia's Social & Economic Change (SE-Change) Laboratory is hosting a 1-day research symposium, "Efficient Health and Research Solutions." Our goal is to build collaborative capacity between clinical researchers and health economists across BC and Canada that will lead to productive research synergy.
Informal Reception 4:00pm - 6:00pm
At this event, we will be tackling answers to some critically important clinical research questions such as:
- What are the different clinical research study designs that can provide efficiency data?
- What are clinical research barriers to including and engaging in health economics?
- What type of health economics questions do clinical researchers find most useful?
- Intergrating health authorities into clinical research: what are successful approaches?
From a health economices perspective we will be answering the following questions:
- Why do we need health economic data to inform health policy?
- How do we set priorities in health care? Discussing investment and disinvestment decisions.
- What is the role for economic evaluations alongside clinical trials?
- How can decision analytic modeling aid in informing health policy?
