The brochure includes a summary of the Health Economics and Outcome Measurement (HEOM) theme that is led by John Brazier. The HEOM theme brings together researchers in health economics, econometrics and outcomes measurement from the Universities of Sheffield and York. HEOM will provide health economic support to all themes in the development, evaluation and implementation of new health care treatments, technologies and services. There are also several methodological areas that will be developed by the HEOM theme, including:
- As part of the Public Health and Inequalities theme, look at ways of allowing for inequalities in cost-effectiveness studies and present guidance on applying these methods
- Identify and test possible PROMs for use in mental and child health using previous evidence and the views of service users.
