This one-day event will bring together academics, commissioners and service managers with an interest in the use of economic evidence to inform decisions in the context of social care.

Presentations will set out both the pressures and complexity within social care, and a range of possible health economics approaches, relevant to this context.

The event is intended to encourage and facilitate new collaborations and to shape the future research agenda.
