Wellbeing & Capability

Description
This research group is formed around one of the two methodological programmes within the Health Economics Unit. The programme of work arises from concerns about the inadequacies of the current economic evaluation framework within health economics. It aims to improve the conduct of economic evaluation in complex settings, where a broader assessment of costs and outcomes is required, developing approaches to enable such assessment within a sound theoretical extra-welfarist (in its widest sense) framework. The programme does not take a single philosophy, but a strong element of the programme is to build on work developing Sen's capability approach.The programme has four main research areas: 1. Examining the underlying theory of capability and how it relates to economic evaluation. 2. Developing, valuing and validating economic measures of outcome that include, and go beyond, health gain - Developing measures; Valuing measures; Validity assessment3. Exploring decision rules for decision-making. 4. Exploring the process of estimating efficiency and equity using different evaluative spaces within the contexts of primary research and secondary modelling
