Informal/unpaid care in England - the benefits and challenges of large datasets and health economics

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Adriana Castelli - Invited speaker

Care-Connect’s seminar series will continue with a discussion about the benefits and challenges of using large-scale datasets and health economics to study informal/unpaid care in England. Examples of data sets that can be utilised in this field, applications and preliminary analyses will be shared by researchers in Health Economics, Health Policy and Social Policy from the Universities of York and Leeds. Emphasis of the seminar will be how this type of analysis and results can inform policy and practice. This event is likely to be of interest to academics working on informal care, health economics and social policy and to individuals engaged with informal care and related policies.
