Health and well-being

We have carried out several projects examining the use of technology in healthcare. In addition, we have worked on health economics projects relating to the costs of missed care in community nursing, mental health and home care. We regularly use quality of life and well-being measures in our studies and have a good grounding the science of well-being measurement. We are currently working on a project on the economics of personalised care in Ireland and on two projects relating to technology-enabled care in Scotland.

Missed care in community nursing

This project was one of several partnerships with University College Dublin to explore the impact of ‘missed care’ in community nursing. Just Economics provided support on the economic component of the study, which included estimates of the cost of missed care and the identification of those costs through focus groups with nurses.

This project was a partnership between the Football Foundation, Sport Relief and Age UK. The project set out to use the appeal of professional football clubs to engage older people (over 55) in a range of health-promoting activities.  Just Economics supported the Football Foundation to carry out an SROI evaluation of its aim to increase physical activity and reduce social isolation of project participants.
