New guide to health economics for public health practitioners

Dr Joanna Charles and Prof Rhiannon Tudor Edwards of the Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation (CHEME) at the University's College of Health & Behavioural Sciences have produced a new electronic handbook entitled “A Guide To Public Health Economics: a concise desktop handbook”. CHEME is part of the University’s School of Healthcare Sciences and contributes to the Bangor Institute for Health & Medical Research (BIHMR) which brings together health research across the University.

This handbook is intended as a useful resource to provide an introduction and define key economic terminology, so that those working in public health, who have an interest in health economics and can better understand and appraise economic evidence. We hope the handbook serves as a quick reference guide.

English and Welsh language copies of the handbook can be viewed and downloaded from
