BSc (intercalating) undergrad project


Teaching health economics

Teaching Health Economics

  • General consensus about what undergraduate economics and postgraduate economics/HSR/ public health students need to know

  • General competency among us to teach this (see one, do one, teach one)


Growth in demand for health economics teaching

Growth in demand for health economics teaching

  • Not just “economists” who are interested

  • Medical students/nurses/physiotherapists are “interested”

  • Public Health Training (MFPH Part A)

  • Scottish Doctor (Learning outcome for basic, social and clinical sciences and underlying principles )

  • (Pilot) survey of three medical schools

  • Analysis of the survey

    • multi choice questions will be scored

Issues

Issues

  • Pedagogy of learning

    • Problem Based Learning (PBL)

    • How does Health Economics fit into this

  • What do they need to know?

    • Costs, benefits, ICERs, WTP

    • Demand, supply, cost curves

    • Health funding, organisation

    • Grossman model


What next

What next?

  • Newcastle University and NICE are looking at establishing a teaching package

  • But still the issue of what to teach

  • And who should teach it (anyone if a “package” exists)

  • Larger survey to establish the extent of the “problem”
