At this CPC&HSR seminar, Dr Thomas Mason, Research Fellow in Health Economics at the University of Manchester, will present a talk titled 'Did a scheme that paid drugs misuse treatment providers by abstinence focused outcomes lead to an increase in emergency admissions in England?'
Dr Jonathan Stokes will chair the session.
Pay-for-performance schemes have been increasingly common in health and care settings in recent decades despite limited consensus as to their effects. A novel scheme in England paid drugs misuse treatment providers by abstinence focused outcomes in eight local authorities, with previous evaluations suggesting this led to generally worse treatment outcomes and reduced treatment initiation/retention. We therefore examined whether the scheme led to increased hospital admissions in a population at risk of the harms of substance misuse using secondary care data for England.
