PhD Studentship in Health Economics: Enhancing Quality in Social Care Through Economic Analysis

Important description
Project Title: Enhancing quality in social care through economic analysis

Improved life expectancy at older ages suggests that social care has an increasingly important role to play in maintaining and enhancing health and well-being. However, little is known regarding the value-for-money of many social care interventions and policies, especially amongst people with multi-morbidity. Further, there is lack of understanding regarding the factors that are associated with better outcomes. The PhD project aims to build up the evidence base in these areas by undertaking economic analysis of a newly created Scottish linked health, social care and housing dataset, supplemented by primary data collection at local authority area level. The student will liaise closely with key Scottish Government personnel throughout the project.

This project is funded by the Scottish Graduate School Doctoral Training Centre and ESRC.

The selected candidate will also need to be approved by the Scottish Graduate School-Doctoral Training Centre.
