CHDS hosted Assistant Professor Stéphane Verguet as part of a Media Hub residency with Hub lead Jake Waxman. Focused on the development of educational materials related to extended cost-effectiveness analysis (ECEA), Verguet created a teaching pack and resource pack about the topic, publically accessible within the CHDS repository. Unlike conventional cost-effectiveness analysis, ECEA includes non-health benefits such as financial risk protection and equity considerations such as distributional consequences.
The teaching pack features videos introducing extended cost-effectiveness analysis (ECEA) and detailing how it is conducted, and assembles ECEA publications and teaching materials. In addition to the videos, this teaching pack includes a glossary and tutorial. Multimedia segments included in the teaching pack were created in partnership with the Global Health Education and Learning Incubator.
The resource pack includes noteworthy publications that demonstrate broad exposure to extended cost-effectiveness analysis (ECEA).
Waxman and Verguet used the opportunity to experiment with mobile edu-media production, and utilized another CHDS Media Hub project, Studio-Out-of-the-Box, to facilitate the experimentation and production of the final products.
