Abandoning Illusions, Confronting Biases: What Behavioural Economics Tells Us About Strategies to Improve Health Care

Allan Best

My interest in better understanding what works for who and why stretches back to dissertation work … uhh, 50 years ago. At the time, as a PhD student in clinical psychology, the interest was in individual therapy – different kinds of therapy work better for different people and different problems. These days, the focus is on health system improvement – how do we make transformative change in complex health systems?
