Bridging Disciplines: Economic Evaluation in Prevention and Health Promotion

The Prevention Dividend Project is hosting 2-day Symposium that will bring together some of Canada's best and brightest prevention and health promotion researchers and practitioners in the field of economic evaluation.

The first day of the conference will examine principles and methods of economic evaluation, take a look at economic evaluation in practice using two case studies, and explore how useful economic evaluation is for influencing the behaviour of people and organizations.

The second day of the program will focus on different aspects of this evolving field, as well as ask some of the tough questions around the usefulness, limitations and challenges of economic evaluation for prevention and health promotion more generally.
