3rd EuHEA PhD Conference

The 3rd EuHEA PhD Student-Supervisor and Early Career Researcher Conference - to be hosted by the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (Barcelona) from the 7th to the 9th of September, 2016.

We would like to thank everyone who submitted their papers for the 3rd EuHEA PhD Conference.

We are also proud to announce that the opening lecture of the conference titled ‘Going beyond the Mean in Health Economic Analysis’, will be presented by Prof. Andrew Jones (University of York).

The conference represents a unique opportunity for those beginning their careers in health economics to network and receive detailed feedback on their research. For more information, please visit the conference website or see the attached flyer: aes.es/euhea-conference-2016flyer.

This course will be presented by the Health Economics Research Institute, University of Aberdeen, on the 2-4 November, 2016.

It is increasingly recognised in many publicly provided health care systems that limited resources coupled with unlimited demand require decisions to be made about the efficient allocation of scarce resources. Economic techniques can inform such decisions. One technique adopted, and further developed, by health economists over the past decade is the discrete choice experiment (DCE) (also known as conjoint analysis).

The course will provide:

  • An introduction to the theoretical basis for the development and application of DCEs in health economics;
  • Step by step guide to the design of DCEs, questionnaire development, data input, data analysis and interpretation of results;
  • An update on methodological issues raised in the application of DCEs in Health Economics.

This course will provide an opportunity for those interested in the application of DCEs to discuss both practical and theoretical issues raised when applying the method. The workshop will include group work sessions with feedback. No knowledge of economics or DCEs is assumed.

A limited number of places remain available after the workshop was opened to our waiting list, if you are interested in attending this workshop, please click here for further information and registration details. The workshop will be a yearly event, if you are unable to attend this year, however may be interested in attending in future years, please email Alison.horne@abdn.ac.uk to be added to the mailing list.
