A Brief History
As one of the four strategic research focus areas, the Health Economics Cluster was formed in 2016 as a joint venture between Curtin Business School and the Faculty of Health Sciences. Reflecting its true multi-disciplinary nature, memberships of the cluster span across different areas within Curtin University, including the Schools of Economics and Finance and Management from CBS, and the Schools of Public Health and Psychology and Speech Pathology from the Faculty of Health Sciences. Our collaborative networks operate both within our two Faculties, across the University more broadly, and with leading academics and policy makers at a national and international level.
Currently the cluster focus on three main themes:
- Economics of Health and wellbeing
- Health Systems Research
- Economic evaluation and outcome measurement
The cluster involves both staff and post-graduate students. Details on their research will be provided soon.
