Recording of CWiPP Keynote Lecture - Professor Daniel Hausman “Health, Well-being and Preferences”

The Centre for Wellbeing in Public Policy welcomed Professor Daniel Hausman to Sheffield to deliver a keynote lecture on “Health, Well-being and Preferences”. The lecture was recorded and can be viewed below.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) uses a methodology that relies on representing the benefits of health care technologies in terms of numbers, by relying on public preferences over different health states. Dan Hausman presents his critique of this approach by addressing “a different and potentially powerful argument in defence of assigning values by eliciting preferences.”
