Latest publications from HEDS in October

Our regular monthly trawl for new publications from HEDS in collaboration with colleagues in ScHARR and further afield has reaped a tremendous amount of fresh research. Many of these are currently in press, so you can find much of our work in its open access form via our institutional repository. Tuck in here.   
Also don't forget that HEDS have a special issue of PharmacoEconomics out this month - you can access all of the papers here
