The PhD project will fit within the existing research interests of the Health Economics Group and may be chosen from one of the suggested projects:
Project (1) To explore how choice experiments can be used in economic evaluation for evaluating or designing health and social care interventions.
Project (2) Evaluation of variations in the valuations and weights of quality adjusted life years (QALYs) and consideration of the impact of such variations on cost-effectiveness analyses.
Project (3) To investigate the role of social norms in determining weight and how social norms and weight interact to determine economic outcomes.
Project (4) To assess the utility of different modelling approaches for health economic evaluation for a suite of clinical interventions with varying levels of complexity.
Project (5) Using survey, experimental and other behavioural methodologies to analyse patients’ choices over different treatments and associated health outcomes.
Applicants suggesting other topics relevant to the Health Economic Group’s work programme will also be considered.
