InstEAD affiliate Aki Tsuchiya, with input from InstEAD Research Fellow Philip Powell and the Government Work and Health Unit’s Mark Langdon, has led a novel knowledge exchange project into public preferences for access to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) by employment status, funded by the University of Sheffield Social Sciences Partnerships, Impact and Knowledge Exchange (SSPIKE) Knowledge Exchange and Impact Opportunities Scheme (KEIO).

The work utilises stated preference methodology to provide estimates of public preferences for access to CBT in terms of degree of preference asymmetry in favour of the employed or unemployed and degree of preference for equality of access for equal medical need. This knowledge will help organisations, such as the Work and Health Unit, to better understand what members of the public support in terms of the allocation of services.

The work has been presented to the Work and Health Unit, Caxton House, London on 4th May 2017, the Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG) Summer Meeting, University of Aberdeen, 28-30th June 2017, and most recently as a Sheffield Solutions seminar at the Department for Work and Pensions, Rockingham House, Sheffield on 27 July 2017.
