WORKSHOP: Using Discrete Choice Experiments in Health Economics: Theoretical and Practical Issues

WORKSHOP: Using Discrete Choice Experiments in Health Economics: Theoretical and Practical Issues.

19-21 November 2014, Jury’s Inn, Aberdeen

Health Economics Research Unit, University of Aberdeen are running this popular annual workshop. 

It is increasingly recognised in many publicly provided health care systems that limited resources coupled with unlimited demand require decisions to be made about the efficient allocation of scarce resources. Economic techniques can inform such decisions. One technique adopted, and further developed, by health economists over the past decade is the discrete choice experiment (DCE) (also known as conjoint analysis).

The workshop will provide:
•       Information on the theoretical basis for, & application of, DCEs
•       Hands-on experience in DCE design, and a practical guide to data input, data analysis, and the interpretation of DCE results
•       An overview of methodological issues and recent developments in the application of DCEs.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for those interested in the application of DCEs to discuss both practical and theoretical issues raised when applying the method. The workshop will include group work sessions with feedback. No knowledge of economics or DCEs is assumed.

A limited number of places remain available after the workshop was opened to our waiting list, if you are interested in attending this workshop, please click here for further information and registration details.
