Cafe Scientifique - What should we value in healthcare?

What should we value in healthcare?

Speaker: Dr Dwayne Boyers, Professor Mandy Ryan and Professor Marjon van der Pol, Health Economics Research Unit, University of Aberdeen

Explore what impacts funding for NHS treatment, and the questions surrounding what we should really value in a climate with limited resources.

The NHS makes choices about what treatments to fund by weighing costs against benefits. But what benefits should be included – clinical, well-being, or something else? Should the NHS pay for treatments that don’t improve health, but are still valued by the public? Join us to discuss these issues and more.

Part of the Cafe Sci series. 

Venue: Belmont FilmhouseKino Bar, Belmont Filmhouse
