Eliciting the level of health inequality aversion in England

NHS Evidence - health management - Thu, 28/01/2016 - 11:35

Centre for Health Economics -
Policy makers faced with equality-efficiency trade-offs can articulate the nature and extent of their health inequality aversion using social welfare functions. This study uses data from an online survey of the general public in England to elicit health inequality aversion parameters by numerically solving Atkinson and Kolm social welfare functions and elicits median inequality aversion parameters of 10.95 for Atkinson and 0.15 for Kolm. These values suggest substantial concern for health inequality among the English general public which, at current levels of quality adjusted life expectancy, implies weighting health gains to the poorest fifth of people in society six to seven times as highly as health gains to the richest fifth.

Growing old together: sharing new ways to support older people

NHS Evidence - health management - Thu, 28/01/2016 - 10:42

Commission on Improving Urgent Care for Older People -
This report calls for a fundamental change to the way care for older people is designed and delivered, so that care is tailored around individuals rather than institutions. It outlines eight key principles the health and care sector can adopt to improve urgent care for older people including starting with care driven by a person’s needs and goals, having a greater focus on proactive care and allowing local leaders the space to build relationships and sustainable solutions. It concludes that by changing the way services to older people are organised, care for this group can be improved and growing pressure on acute hospitals relieved. It also highlights compelling ways organisations and health and care systems across the country are revolutionising care for older people.
