A Taste of Methodology: Analyzing Cost-Effectiveness of Interventions
Faculty, do you want to explore new research methods, but find that you’re just too busy? Try A Taste of Methodology! A Taste of Methodology is a series of semiannual BRIEF workshops for faculty, with lunch included. The objective is to provide you with an efficient way to assess a methodological approach’s potential for your research. In this semester’s workshop, Max Crowley will introduce approaches to assessing the cost-effectiveness and return-on-investment of health and social interventions. Max will illustrate the application of these models using examples from research at Penn State.
This semester’s offering is
Cost-Effectiveness & Benefit-Cost Analysis of Interventions for Investing in Health Development
