Prioritization: a difficult word, and technique, to master.


In a context of finite resources, multiple needs and growing demands of organizational accountability, there has been an increase in the number of multi-dimensional prioritisation exercises (of diseases, interventions, etc) in the health arena. Not all of them following robust methodologies. The seminar will explore robust techniques for the prioritization of alternatives in health settings. Specifically, the seminar will introduce the subject of multi-dimensional decision problems, review common mistakes in the application of prioritization techniques, explore new methodologies, and describe applications in the field of spatial risk prioritization.
