The basics of health economics

15 November 2018 10am - 4pm

Resources in the NHS are scarce. Health economics, the application of the economics discipline to the field of health care, is becoming an increasingly important consideration in deciding how health care resourced can be allocated efficiently. But what do terms like “cost-effective” really mean in health care?

This course is aimed at individuals with no prior experience of health economics, but who would like an introduction to the health economics terminology that is becoming more prevalent in the NHS.

CLAHRC West are running this free day long course to help NHS staff get to grips with health economics when they come across it in work. The course is run by Professor Jo Coast and Dr Paul Mitchell, health economists who work with CLAHRC West and University of Bristol.
