There are a number of Research Internships available in the HSE St. Petersburg International Centre for Health Economics, Management and Policy (CHEMP). The deadline for applications is September 15th 2016
Senior Research Fellow at CHEMP, Dr Peter Meylakhs, recently attended a workshop at Warwick University (UK)
CHEMP is pleased to announce the release of a new publication by CHEMP Director Christopher J Gerry and CHEMP Research Fellow, Diana Quirmbach. The paper, “Gender, education and Russia’s tobacco epidemic: A life-course approach” examines the smoking histories of Russian’s surveyed in the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey of HSE (RLMS-HSE) and the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS).The authors examine the dynamics of smoking patterns over the past 7 decades and find that smoking rates differ most strongly by gender within all cohorts, but that this differential has decreased over time, driven by increases in female smoking and more recently by decreases in smoking among men. The publication appears in Social Science and Medicine, a Q1 journal and one of the leading outlets in the Public Health field.
This 5-day summer school, the first of its kind in Russia, will address this vital topic, starting with 2 days devoted explicitly to the measurement of health benefits, before moving on to consider cost-benefit analysis, cost-utility and cost-effectiveness analysis and other increasingly common methods as well as the design of trial based studies and decision analytic models. The school will be delivered in English by some of the world’s leading experts in this field.
CHEMP is currently recruiting for a Qualitative Research Manager to bring oversight and management to several strands of qualitative research emerging within the CHEMP themes. We currently have five priority research themes: (i) Health outcome measurement and valuation; (ii) Economics of Health Behaviours; (iii) cardiovascular disease; (iv) mental health and well-being; and (v) Economics of ageing. There are qualitative elements involved across these multidisciplinary themes.
The 2nd CHEMP work in progress seminar took place on Tuesday 12th April at Kantemirovskaya from 3.30 pm until around about 6.00 pm.
The purpose of such workshops will be to share ideas across the workstreams and with colleagues outside of the workstreams, provide an opportunity for individuals to present work in progress and receive feedback, and in particular, to provide an informal setting for our CHEMP interns to discuss and present the progress of their work.
