David Mott joined the OHE team in March 2017. Prior to this David was a full-time PhD student in Health Economics at the Institute of Health & Society at Newcastle University. David holds an MSc in Economics & Health Economics as well as a BSc in Economics, both from the University of Sheffield.
David’s research interests focus on the valuation of healthcare benefits. This includes describing health and valuing health states for the estimation of quality-adjusted life years (QALYs). He is also interested in the valuation of broader outcomes (e.g. non-health outcomes or well-being) and how best to incorporate them into the health technology assessment process.
David’s doctoral research focuses on the application of discrete choice experiments (DCEs) in healthcare decision-making and the normative debate surrounding whose preferences should be elicited (for example see Mott and Najafzadeh, 2016 ). The context for this work is a public health intervention aimed at improving weight loss maintenance in obese individuals that previously lost a clinically significant amount of weight.
At OHE, David will be working on a range of projects in the area of patient reported outcomes, including the EuroQol-funded project which will identify what aspects of health are important to people.
