I am very pleased that my recent application for internal pump-priming research funds, from the University’s Risk, Decision-Making, and Evidencing research theme, has been successful. This award of just under £4,000 will enable me to investigate expanding my current research, to examine the engineering of person-centric decision-making tools for cost-effectiveness analyses that inform selection of healthcare interventions against disease. The results of this initial investigation will prime applications for further RCUK research grants or a fellowship proposal later in 2017.
Over the next few months I hope to arrange a fair amount of travel to speak with researchers both in the UK and further afield who hold an interest in pursuing this agenda further, in addition to undertaking a number of development courses around cost-effectiveness analyses. More detail will follow in due course.
