Our team is doing research on the measurement of perceived health and on its application as an indicator of health outcomes and needs for healthcare. We are 20 professionals coming from different backgrounds such as medicine, statistics, psychology, sociology, and economics. We apply the perspective of public health and epidemiological methodology in the evaluative research of health services.
Our mission is to produce scientifically valid and socially relevant knowledge on the needs of health services and health outcomes. Our activities include research, scientists training and knowledge transfer.
The Health Services Research Group was created in 1996 and was acknowledged in 1997 by the Universities and Research Commission of the Catalonia Government (Generalitat de Catalunya) (AGAUR 2009SGR 01095). Since 2006 it has been an active member of the Centre for Biomedical Research Network, Epidemiology and Public Health (CIBERESP), being part of its directive committee.
We are always ready to receive talented scientists with interest in the research lines detailed in this Website.
