Workshop flyer (pdf)
NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULL.
Anyone interested in participating can still email Alison Horne to be put on the waiting list.
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:
- Background information on the theoretical basis for, and 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 provides an opportunity for those interested in the application of DCEs to discuss both practical and theoretical issues raised when applying the method. The workshop includes group work sessions with feedback. No knowledge of economics or DCEs is assumed.If you would be interested in attending the workshop, please email Alison Horne, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For further details on the timetable for the 3 days, please view the attached workshop flyerand/or contact either Alison Horne (email@example.com), Mandy Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Verity Watson, (email@example.com)

Using Discrete Choice Experiments in Health Economics: Theoretical and Practical Issues, 2008.
HERU were pleased to announce the return of this popular workshop. It was a three-day event running from the 19th - 21st November 2008 at the King's College, Old Aberdeen.
Policy Conference 2008: Involving the public in health care decisions: The use of discrete choice experiments
The purpose of the conference was to present recent policy driven research that used discrete choice experiments (DCEs) to involve the public in health care decisions.
2008 joint meeting of the UK Health Economists' Study Group and the Nordic Health Economists' Study Group
Policy Conference 2007: Paying for performance? Changing Payments Systems and the Scottish Health Service
The purpose of the conference was to present recent policy driven research into the effects of different types of mechanisms designed to improve performance, to stimulate discussion on the implications of these results and consider the increasing use of explicit financial incentives for the Scottish health system. It also provided an opportunity to explore future productive areas of research for HERU.
Using Discrete Choice Experiments in Health Economics: Theoretical and Practical Issues, 2005.
The Expert Workshop on Discrete Choice Experiments ‘Using discrete choice experiments in health economics: theoretical and practical issues’ was developed as part of the VIPs training strategy. The aim of this Workshop was to provide information on practical and theoretical issues faced when conducting DCEs.Read more...
