Dr Dam Anh Tran from the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre presented at the 2019 NDARC Seminar Series on Thurs, 19 September 2019.

This seminar was a brief introduction of the health economic evaluation: costing, utility-based quality of life, cost effectiveness analysis, cost utility analysis, and cost benefit analysis.

It outlined the supporting services health economists offer to researchers at NDARC, and also discussed the timeline to incorporate a health economic section into grant proposal/manuscript/paper.
