Professor Richard Grieve
BA MSc PhD
of Health Economics Methodology
15-17 Tavistock Place
I lead a research team whose current research focuses on developing quantitative methods for the evaluation of health care programmes. Our expertise is in the design and analysis of observational studies as well as RCTs, and in methods for cost-effectiveness analyses. We are developing methods that address common methodological issues such as confounding due to treatment selection; non-compliance, missing data, and external validity.
We also undertake applied health economic evaluations predominately in the areas of adult and paediatric intensive care, emergency medicine, emergency and elective surgery, and to the evaluation of new health policies. We have recently started an evaluation of the integrated care pioneers, and have undertaken research evaluating the preferences of blood donors for alternative changes to the blood collection service.
My research programme is funded by a five year senior research fellowship from NIHR.
I am the co-director of the LSHTM centre for statistical methodology and sit on the NIHR commissioning board.
I teach on the introductory module, introduction to health economics, and organise the economic evaluation module
My main research interests are in developing analytical methods for cost-effectiveness analyses, in particular those that use non-randomised study designs. My current work aims to develop more appropriate analytical methods for dealing with confounding due to treatment selection, missing data and clustered data.
I have received methodological grants from the ESRC on methods for reducing selection bias in health economic evaluation. I was also the PI on a year MRC funded project to investigate analytical methods for economic evaluations that use data from cluster randomised trials.
I have ongoing interests in applying the techniques of economic evaluation across a diverse range of clinical areas including adult and paediatric intensive care, hepatitis C, mental health, and for emergency and elective surgical procedures.
I am interested in supervising PhD students in the general area of statistical methods and health economic evaluation.
