Initial description of the PhD topic:
The monetary value of health and wellbeing gains remains understudied. We will develop and use methods, explicitly aimed to produce societal monetary values of health and well-being gains. Therefore, we aim to develop a framework for measuring quality of care in monetary terms. Such values also include equity considerations. There may be differences in weighting gains for men vs. women, elderly versus young or severely versus mildly ill beneficiaries. The developed methods may be used in future studies, and results may inform decision makers throughout Europe.
