Animal health decision making: new teaching methods for economics to be designed

There is a growing demand for the application of economics in animal health decision making, but economic concepts and tools to aid decision making are rarely taught to animal health professionals.

Dr Keith Howe is part of the Royal Veterinary College team leading the NEAT Consortium of over 60 international partner institutions to design and develop educational materials and methods, disseminate them to partners and end-users, and evaluate their wider impacts on society. NEAT stands for “Networking to enhance the use of economics in animal health education, research and policy making in Europe and beyond” and is a 3-year project co-funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union.
