We are pleased to announce the Associate Professor Kim Dalziel was successful in obtaining a 2021 NHMRC Investigator Grant titled:
Advancing health economic evaluation measurement and design to support priority setting for vulnerable children
The aim of this fellowship is to develop a new program of research that directs health funding decisions for children to ensure they are fair and efficient with the following aims:
- Make possible the generation of quality adjusted life years (QALYs) in economic evaluation of interventions for young children. Develop new empirical research so that Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PEDsQL) scores can be used in economic evaluation.
- Quantify inequities in the design and financing of the Australian health system for vulnerable children including those with high needs. This will impact the design and financing of the health system to ensure it is fair and delivers outcomes for all children and
- Bring advanced pediatric health economics methods alongside clinical research and strength translation to policy, thus reducing waste and improving fairness.
