Workshop: Health Preferences in Cancer Trials - What Choices Can Tell Us About Value

As part of its capacity building services, the Cancer Research Economics Support Team (CREST) is pleased to announce it will be holding a workshop to provide an introduction to measuring preferences for health care services

There is an emerging interest in the use of choice based methods to measure preferences associated with health care and its outcomes. This rests on the idea that we can discern the value placed on an intervention, or its outcomes, by understanding how differences in the way health care is provided impacts on the choices people make. Discrete choice experiments (DCE) are a survey method that allows us to investigate those choices in a systematic way. This work-shop will provide an overview of the steps involved for the design, implementation and analysis of DCEs with applications to the
field of cancer re-search.

The workshop will use a series of workshop-style seminars and exercises to provide theory and practical examples to cover:

  • Why use a DCE;
  • Developing a DCE questionnaire (including attribute selection, testing and designing the
  • experiment);
  • The practicalities of implementing a DCE;
  • What to make of data from a DCE; and
  • Applying the results.

This workshop is for those who would like to gain an overview on the use of DCEs for cancer research. Participants will receive course notes, including the slides presented, references used as examples throughout the workshop, and additional useful readings. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Participants will need to arrange their own travel to and from the workshop. CREST is unable to provide travel assistance for this workshop.
