OHE Welcomes David Parkin as a Visiting Researcher


OHE is delighted to welcome Prof David Parkin as a visiting researcher at OHE over the coming months.

A long-standing member of the EuroQol Group, Prof Parkin's expertise will provide valuable insights for OHE's current research programme around EQ-5D topics. He will be working with OHE's Director of Research, Prof Nancy Devlin, and other OHE team members on a variety of projects relating to the distribution and properties of weighted EQ-5D data, EQ-VAS and analysis of PROMs data. In addition to writing up a series of papers based on research already undertaken in collaboration with OHE, Prof Parkin will be developing a number of research proposals for future work in this area.
