DREAMS workshop: The economics of workforce selection

This third and final free-to-attend workshop in the DREAMS series will bring together methodologists from health economics, workforce scientists and educationalists to clarify the main direct and indirect costs and benefits in healthcare and education selection.

The workshop will create a space to discuss and explore the economic implications of selection, especially in health services, with regulation being considered a special case of selection. The aim will be to work towards developing a framework for evaluating personnel selection methods, especially in healthcare, taking into account the costs, benefits, risks and resources required.

Catering will be provided. Please contact lynne.bainbridge@york.ac.uk to register your place.

The DREAMS network is a collaborative project funded via the Worldwide University Network (WUN) Research Development Fund, with matched funding provided by the participating WUN-affiliated institutions. The initiative brings together international experts and researchers in order to extend and develop new approaches to understanding the selection of individuals into the professions, with medical selection as the main motivating example.
