The persistence of health and wider inequalities perpetuates health inequities in our society. But what are these inequalities and how can we measure them? This session provides an introduction to the concepts of inequity and inequality in health and different techniques for measuring health inequalities.
These sessions are aimed at anyone interested in learning more about health economics and economic evaluation, and how different methods and approaches are used to inform decision making at national, system or organisational level.
Across two sessions, we will provide an introduction to: key concepts in health economics and economic evaluation in health care and how different methods are used to inform resource allocation and funding decisions within the NHS.
