Project Description

Digital health innovations have the potential and the responsibility to reduce health inequalities by improving the access and use of health and social care services. However, digital exclusion remains one of the major challenges in this context. While 12 million (22%) people in the UK are likely to be digitally excluded due to lack of internet access, skills or motivation, evidence on how digital exclusion affects health inequalities is scarce. Digitally excluded individuals may be at risk of worse access to health and social care services, and hence worse health outcomes. While the socio-economic drivers of digital exclusion are relatively well known, it is unclear how these differences affect service use and health outcomes. In addition, the extent to which the effects of digital exclusion are impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic is unknown.

This PhD will explore the impact of digital exclusion on service use and health outcomes in the management of long-term conditions. The PhD will explore the pathways through which digital exclusion impacts health outcomes, including an examination of the potential impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on digital inclusion. The quantitative component will involve secondary analysis of existing routinely-collected data from the Care City cohort, which links data across primary, secondary and social care, and council administrative data. The PhD will also explore linked data from the UK Household Longitudinal Study (Waves 8 and 9), which provides more detailed information about digital exclusion. PhD will explore changing patterns in the use of digital health care, health service use and health outcomes due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hours:
Full time, 37.5 hours per week
Contract Type:
Permanent
Closes:
18th December 2019
Job Ref:
907-NICE833A
 
This is an exciting job that presents a unique combination of opportunities: not only will you apply cutting-edge quantitative methods to conduct original, high-quality research, you will also present it to national policy-makers and contribute to their decision-making. You also get the satisfaction of knowing your work will directly improve health and social care in England.

The role

We are recruiting a Band 8A Senior technical analyst (economic modelling). Working collaboratively within a small multidisciplinary team, you will provide advice and technical support to committees on economic issues during development and updating of guidelines. This includes systematically identifying and appraising economic evidence to address key health and social care questions and preparing structured summaries of the evidence.
 
You will also undertake the development of original, applied decision models and analyses that will be used to inform the deliberations of the guideline committee (comprising decision-makers who are predominantly clinical, public health, social care and patient experts with limited formal expertise in economics).
 
Providing a quality assurance function, you will be involved in reviewing guidelines produced by other developers to ensure that they reflect the economic evidence appropriately.
 
When undertaking quality assurance, you will also ensure that economic modelling and statistical analyses produced by the developer have been conducted robustly, are in line with NICE’s methods and are free from technical errors.
 
You will also have the opportunity to mentor junior analysts.
 
What you will bring to NICE:

The primary requirement for the position of Senior technical analyst (economic modelling) is demonstrable ability in the practical application of mathematical modelling to inform real-world decision problems:
 
  • You should have skills and experience in decision-analytic modelling, ideally gained in the context of economic evaluation for health, public health or social care.
  • Expert skills in the analysis and synthesis of quantitative data are essential, as is the ability to communicate the methods and results of complex analyses to a range of audiences, both orally and in writing.
  • At present, the team has a preference for models developed in MS Excel, R, TreeAge and/or WinBUGS; however, applications from candidates with experience in other platforms are welcome.

You will have the opportunity to extend your own skills in modelling and economics and contribute to methodological developments in the field.

Our Senior technical analysts are supported to publish their research in high-impact journals and to present at international conferences. The post will be line-manged by a Band 8B Technical adviser (economics). 

Why NICE:
 
Here at NICE we are passionate and proud of the work we do and the impact we make.
 
We can offer you a great place to work with good benefits, flexible working and a supportive, friendly and inclusive environment.
 
We have an academic culture committed to producing high quality work and we take collective responsibility.
 
The department:
 
The Centre for Guidelines is a world-leading authority in developing clinical, public health and social care guidelines. It provides recommendations for the NHS and local authorities on appropriate prevention, treatment and care options for people in England, based on systematic appraisal of the best available evidence of effectiveness and cost effectiveness.

PhD: https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/postgraduate-courses/health-economics-and-policy-phd/

Our programmes prepare students to become independent experts in health economics and policy evaluation and to face the challenges of mixed methods research in health economics. Students complete courses including health economics, data analysis, systematic reviews, and qualitative research methods in order to gain an in-depth understanding of the complex and interdisciplinary environment of health economics related to policy.

Because our programmes are offered through Blended Learning, they appeal to students from around the world with current work or family responsibilities but who are eager to learn and advance their careers. Strong links to industry and a severe shortage of skills in this area ensure that graduates of this programme are highly employable in their home countries and globally. Student destinations are in government, including Ministries of Health and/or Welfare; international agencies such as the WHO, UNICEF, World Bank, and the Overseas Development Institute; academia; consultancies or think tanks, where they can use the knowledge and skills from the PhD or MSc to generate evidence and policy to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and equity of health systems.

Our Blended Learning programmes in Health Economics and Policy are offered jointly by the Division of Health Research and the Department of Economics. Both programmes provide an advanced degree of specialization that builds on high-quality foundation skills. We have many years of experience in offering study delivered to students who require a flexible approach, part time, and off campus.
