Health economics research was established at
CTC over 15 years ago.
We aim to contribute to health and healthcare, in Australia and
internationally, by incorporating measures of benefit, harm and
cost into clinical studies, and to evaluate the cost-effectiveness
of drugs, devices and healthcare programs. We contribute to the
development of new methods of outcome assessment and resource
measurement, as well as conducting research into preference
elicitation and health equity.
We have an active teaching program in the University of Sydney's
undergraduate medical program and postgraduate public health
degrees, and supervise higher degree research students from
economics and health backgrounds undertaking an MPhil or PhD.
Health economics at the CTC is funded in part
by an NHMRC program grant and in part by project grants and
fellowships from the Australian government, non-government
organisations and international organisations.
