AIMS OF THE SHORT COURSE
Finite public resources coupled with an increasing demand for health care means that decisions must be made about how to most efficiently allocate the scarce health care budget. This requires information about costs and benefits of health care. Health economists have developed techniques that can provide values for health care benefits. A technique that is increasingly used for this purpose is the discrete choice experiment (DCE) method.
DCEs are now widely applied to value health and health care. Furthermore, DCEs are a potential method to recognise the importance of patient centred care, and to value patient experiences in the delivery of health care. DCEs are also applied more widely to consider population and health care professionals’ preferences in many areas of health policy. Professor Mandy Ryan, University of Aberdeen, and Deborah Marshall, University of Calgary will be presenting this short course again based on the positive response to previous workshops (workshop will again be limited to 25 participants).
