PHAA Preventive Health Economics Workshop
Date: Tuesday 12 May 2020
Venue: Pan Pacific Perth
Start Time: 12:00pm (lunch served on arrival)
Finish Time: 5:00pm
There is increasing pressure upon and appetite for investment in prevention by Australian governments. However, implementing potentially beneficial interventions are likely to require evidence of their value for money. There are several challenges faced by public health practitioners, policy-makers and researchers when it comes to communicating the economic benefits of prevention. In this workshop we will:
Introduce health economic concepts and how they can be used to aid decision-making,
Outline the current economic evidence base for prevention interventions,
Present the current methodological challenges related to developing the economic case for prevention, and
Explore the link between policy-makers and researchers in the field and look to how they can be improved.
By the conclusion of the workshop, with the input from workshop participants, we aim to develop a prioritised list of actions for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers to advance the use of economic evidence in decision-making relating to preventive health investment.
