Research Areas:

Value in Health

Research Summary:

Lyn Murphy’s research pertains to valuing healthcare. Ageing populations and technological advances are placing increasing demands on healthcare systems. Valuing healthcare potentially provides pre- and post-markers for driving and evaluating improvement. Her research presents value as a multidimensional concept, the assessment of which is open to differing interpretations and which relies on objective and subjective elements. Accordingly, she adopts mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative approaches) to collecting measurements and stakeholder perceptions of health outcomes, treatment processes and attendant costs.

Current Research Projects:

Operationalising Whanau Ora
Valuing Heath
