Valuing the health and wellbeing aspects of community empowerment using economic evaluation techniques - PhD in Health Economics Neighbourhood regeneration processes can yield certain quantifiable outputs such as new housing, improved neighbourhood amenities and better facilities.
More challenging to identify and value however are the benefits arising from community empowerment and involvement in community development activities, including any benefits to individuals’ health and wellbeing. In order to provide evidence that regeneration investment is value for money an economic evaluation is required to identify and value the full spectrum of possible costs and outcomes.
This studentship will be nested within the GoWell programme http://www.gowellonline.com/, an ongoing project evaluating neighbourhood regeneration in Glasgow. The studentship is part of an exciting new initiative in ‘The Economics of Public Health’ between the University of Glasgow’s MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit http://www.sphsu.mrc.ac.uk/ and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health http://www.gcph.co.uk/. The studentship will involve the identification and valuation of proposed and actual benefits from community empowerment and community development activities within a small number of Glasgow communities. The use of economic evaluation methods will be employed to generate evidence on the value of these outcomes in the context of other regeneration outcomes.
You will be supervised by Dr Emma McIntosh, http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/medicine/staff/emmamcintosh/, of the Health Economics and Health technology Assessment (HEHTA) team at the Centre for Population Health Sciences http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/medicine/research/populationhealth/hehta/ with secondary supervision from Professor Carol Tannahill, http://www.gcph.co.uk/people/27_prof_carol_tannahill, Director of the Glasgow Centre for Population Health and Kenny Lawson, This three year studentship carries a stipend of £13,590 with an intended start date of 1st November 2011.
