CHP PhD Confirmation Seminar: May 29 – Advancing Health Economic Evaluation Methodologies for Health Policy Design

Tuesday May 29, 4.30pm – 5.30pm
Seminar Room 410 – Level 4, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Presenter: Michelle Tew

Health economic evaluation is a fundamental component in helping inform health policy decisions, as the economic value of a health intervention is considered alongside its clinical value particularly in today’s tight budgetary climate. However, to be useful to any decision or policy maker, methodological rigor and consistency is imperative.

This PhD research aims to explore the limitations of current evaluation methodologies and implications for decision making and priority setting using specific case studies. These studies will focus on the two main components of an economic evaluation; cost and outcomes. Two studies will be presented in this seminar; one focusing on cost and the consequences of incorporating future medical costs when evaluating interventions in cancer patients where lifetime medical care is necessary, and another aims to understand the effects of outcomes such as quality of life when extrapolating outcomes in the area of orthopaedic surgery.
