Health Care Assessment

  • The HCA programme focuses on the rigorous evaluation of health care interventions.
  • The underlying philosophy of the programme is the generation of new knowledge through the application of, and interaction between, knowledge synthesis and primary research (particularly randomised controlled trials - RCTs).  
  • Methodological research undertaken collaboratively across the Health Care Assessment and Delivery of Care programmes ensures that our research is undertaken using the most up-to-date and appropriate methods available.

A range of health technologies are evaluated, but our research focusses on a number of sub-themes.
