Heading the Social Policy and Economic Evaluation stream at CenSoC, Terry’s work addresses both methodological and empirical issues in choice modelling. He works in major areas of public policy including:
- Comparing quality of life, both nationally and internationally
- Eliciting preferences for public transportation systems
- Valuing patient preferences and citizen preferences for health care reform
He gained considerable experience in choice modelling whilst heading the quantitative work to value quality of life as part of the UK MRC-funded Investigating Choice Experiments for the Preferences of Older People (ICEPOP) programme (2001-2009). Terry has published a number of articles in top ranked journals in the fields of health economics, mathematical psychology and health services research that have been influential in research and policy. He works with internationally acclaimed researchers in Canada, the UK, the US and the Netherlands and is a co-chief investigator on two major quality of life projects (each approximately GBP400,000).
Terry is most well-known for his work in quality of life and during 2010/11 he is drawing together insights from a number of valuation exercises and surveys using the ICECAP-O and ICECAP-A instruments. Early results from that research were provided in a public lecture. It is anticipated that that work will inform major new multi-national valuation exercises to produce scoring for the instruments.
