On April 16, 2020, the ISPOR Student Chapter at the University of Washington hosted a webinar on how to formulate good research questions featuring Dr. Mark Bounthavong, PhD, PharmD, MPH. He discussed aspects of compelling research questions, shared his formulating process, presented best practices, and provided recommendations for students at all stages of their career.
Dr. Bounthavong is a graduate of the UW CHOICE Institute and a prolific researcher with several years of experience in HEOR. He currently serves as a health economist at the VA Health Economics Resource Center and a Research Affiliate at Stanford University, and his research interests include pharmacoeconomics, outcomes research, health economics, process and program evaluations, econometric methods, and evidence synthesis using Bayesian methods.
Our UW Student Chapter thanks Dr. Bounthavong for his insightful presentation and hopes our fellow researchers find this recording of his presentation to be a helpful resource.
Note: Dr. Bounthavong has authorized the publication of his talk in this post.
