Welcome to U-CARE BrainPub with the title Economic evaluation of interventions in mental health with Researcher Filipa Sampaio, Associate professor of health economics.

The urgency to address population mental health is more pressing than ever, demanding evidence-based strategies. However, information on effectiveness is not sufficient to make decisions on whether the outcomes produced by interventions are value-for-money, or whether decision-makers should allocate existing resources to the financing of such interventions. This seminar will highlight the importance of health economic evaluations in guiding decision-making and informing health policy and cover examples of work conducted in the field, in particular evaluations of clinical trials in mental health. Methodological opportunities and challenges when conducting such studies will also be discussed.


The seminar will be held in English. 

For those who want to join, we will go to a pub after the seminar for an AW.
