The Health Economics team facilitates the development of healthcare programs in Australia and internationally by incorporating patient-centred, economic outcomes into clinical trials.

The team provides analysis on the efficiency, effectiveness and value of healthcare programs to enable policy decision-making across oncology, cardio-metabolic disease and perinatal medicine. They also develop new methods of outcome assessment and resource measurement, and conduct studies to determine patient, clinician and community preferences for healthcare.

Recently the Health Economics team has been exploring ways to improve the design and efficiency of new trials through pre-trial modelling and value of information (VOI) analysis.

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.
