Discrete choice experiments (DCE) are increasingly used within health care to examine how stakeholders (patients, policy makers, etc.) value different aspects of an intervention and/or make trade-offs between various attributes. Since the application of DCEs continues to grow, knowledge and insight about the design and analysis of this quantitative methodology is necessary in order to conduct state of the art DCEs. In this workshop, you will learn about the steps to conduct a DCE, including experimental designs and basic and advanced econometric models (e.g. multinomial logit, mixed logit). The workshop will include hands-on on experimental design and statistical analyses.
