    HSRAANZ 2019 Awards – Best Paper by an Early Career Researcher – Winner, Sopany Saing

    Sopany Saing and researchers from the Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation at the University of Technology Sydney used real-world data to provide the first ex-post evaluation study of the cost effectiveness of mandatory folic acid fortification of bread-making flour in Australia. Equity in outcomes were demonstrated by larger reductions in the neural tube defect rate in babies of teenage mothers and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers, both sub-groups who had the highest rates of neural tube defects prior to the introduction of the mandatory policy.

    HSRAANZ 2019 Awards – Highly Commended PhD Paper – Michelle Tew

    Michelle’s paper “Incorporating Future Medical Costs: Impact on Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in Cancer Patients” was published in Pharmacoeconomics. The aim of the study was to demonstrate the impact of incorporating future medical costs through an applied example using original data from a clinical study evaluating the cost-effectiveness of a sepsis intervention in cancer patients. The study was able to demonstrate the practicability of including future medical costs using publicly available data and the importance of capturing existing heterogeneity between cancer types which can give rise to different cost-effectiveness results. This provides important input into treatment, planning and policy decisions.
