Organised by the Health Economics Research Centre in collaboration with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research
In recent years there has been a marked change in long-term mortality trends in the United Kingdom. Recent mortality statistics show little or no improvements in life expectancy after decades of steady improvement. What has caused these recent trends? Can they be reversed? What are the implications for health and social care policy?
This workshop aims to bring together researchers from a range of perspectives to better understand trends in mortality and life expectancy in the United Kingdom and to explore the factors behind these trends.
It will involve:
- a review of research on trends in mortality and variation across different social groups;
- a comparison of the UK with comparable countries and;
to quantify the likely impact on population health and health care expenditure
Finally a panel discussion will explore the implications for health policy.
- Who should attend? The workshop is intended to bring together academics with those developing ageing related policies in the UK and internationally, to discuss current evidence and to develop a research and policy agenda.
