What do the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the President of France and Joseph Stiglitz all have in common – they think we should be
Should we? Tune in to PHABC’s next Webinar on:
Measuring Health in Our Society – Moving Beyond Life Expectancy and Economic Growth
- Does it matter what we measure? What should we measure?
- What are the shortcomings of the current approaches to measuring social well being and progress?
- What alternative measures are emerging and are they reasonable and viable?
- How do we create momentum to change the traditional approaches?
We are living longer and our "standard" of living is higher. But what do life expectancy and economic growth really tell us about our health or quality of life? As importantly, these indicators may actually be determined by conditions in the past and tell us very little about the future. There is a growing recognition that our current approaches to measuring social and population health are inadequate and we need new measures. As we place more emphasis on measuring our performance it is important that we choose the right indicators and measurement tools. This webinar brings together three experts who have spent a lot of time grabbling with the conceptual and practical issues of measuring societal progress and well being.
Dr. Trevor Hancock
Dr. Andrew Sharpe
