Economic evaluation of a primary care at-risk asthma register

Asthma exacerbations can be life threatening and lead to accident and emergency (A&E) attendances or hospital admissions. Quality of life deteriorates when experiencing such events and due to the sporadic nature of asthma exacerbations, this is not always captured. The aim of this PhD is to estimate the loss in quality of life associated with an asthma exacerbation that leads to an A&E attendance or admission. This estimation intends to provide an alternative way to measure quality of life in asthmatics for use in economic evaluations.

About me

In 2013, I graduated with a Biomedical Sciences (Hons) degree at the University of Southampton. Following this, I completed an MSc in Health Economics at the University of East Anglia where I continued my studies enrolling as a PhD candidate in Health Economics. My research interests are in applying health economics to chronic diseases.
