PUB HLTH 4091 - Public Health Evaluation and Economics

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2023

In the era of evidence-based practice and policy in healthcare, everyone needs evidence on how well an intervention works and whether it provides value for money to inform funding decisions. Evaluation is a tool to provide such information: measuring the success of the intervention in achieving its intended outcomes, determining its value, and providing information on how to improve the intervention to attain even greater success. The course aims to extend student understanding of the evaluation and economic approaches used to evaluate a wide range of public health interventions. Using real world examples, this course equips students with the practical knowledge and skills to design and apply an integrated framework to evaluate a public health intervention
