Economic and Social Determinants of Health and Quality of Life

Health policies impact upon individual well being. Increasingly healthcare systems are being judged in terms of their impact on the ‘patient experience and ‘patient reported outcomes’. Our research focuses on the measurement of social well being and its determinants.

Research projects include:

  • Analysis of the relation between health life style and individual preferences (Miraldo)
  • Economic aspects of the social determinants of health (Smith)
