Health Economics and Leadership Workshop

Event Date: 
23 May 2019
Curtin University
137 St Georges Terrace

Increasing demand and technological advances mean that health care expenditure continues to rise. On the supply side, there is constant pressure caused by resource scarcity.

The Sustainable Health Review, released in April 2019, reviewed eight Enduring Strategies for Sustainability:
1) Commit and collaborate to address major public health issues.
2) Improve mental health outcomes.
3) Great beginnings and a dignified end of life.
4) Person-centred, equitable, seamless access.
5) Drive safety, quality, and value through transparency, funding and planning.
6) Invest in digital healthcare and use data wisely.
7) Culture and workforce to support new models of care.
8) Innovate for sustainability.

The report tabled 30 recommendations to Government.

With the recommendations in mind, this workshop will introduce you to the concepts of (and approaches used to measure) the costs and benefits of health interventions. We will look at how decision makers can use health economics to inform decision making and priority setting in their chosen field.

If you are responsible for departmental budgets and strategic directions including allocating of resources, then this introductory workshop is for you.
