Variations in Healthcare workshop

10/19/2020 09:00 am 10/19/2020 05:00 pm Australia/Melbourne Variations in Healthcare workshop

The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at Monash University is hosting a one-day online workshop bringing together academics, practitioners, government and private sector experts in the following themed sessions:

Time: 9.00am to 11.15am

  • Session 1: Variations in clinical practice and treatment style
    Efficiency and low-value care in the Australian health sector
  • Session 2: Decomposition of geographical healthcare variations in Australia
    Health disparities between urban and rural communities, and regional imbalances in the supply of healthcare workers

Time: 3.00pm to 5.00pm

  • Session 3: Socioeconomic variations and equity in healthcare
    Access, affordability (including the mix of private and public), equity and efficiency of the healthcare system, focusing on supply
  • Session 4: Health technology and its implications for healthcare variations
    How digital health technology has influenced clinical practice and helped to alleviate differences in geographic and socioeconomic access and delivery of healthcare

Each session will run for 60 minutes and comprise 3 x 10-minute presentations by session panelists followed by a moderated 30-minute discussion. Each session panel will include two invited senior experts, and one PhD student or Early Career Researcher.

Among our confirmed expert panelists are:

  • Distinguished Professor Jane Hall, Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE), UTS
  • Professor Anthony Scott, Melbourne Institute: Applied Economic & Social Research, University of Melbourne
  • Dr Angela Ryan, Australian Digital Health Agency, Australian Government
  • Dr Adrian Webster, Australian Institute of Health and Wellbeing, Australian Government
  • Professor Adam Elshaug, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne
  • Dr Denise O’Connor, School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University
  • Associate Professor Liam Caffery, Centre for Online Health, Centre for Health Services Research, University of Queensland
  • Associate Professor Susan Wearne, Health Workforce Division, Department of Health, and ANU Medical School, Australian National University

These senior expert panellists in each session will provide formal feedback to the PhD student or ECRs joining their panel. It is hoped that this format will encourage and promote ongoing research, as well as raise the profiles of the future generation of health economists.
