Ann Livingstone is a research fellow, in the economics of cancer stream at Deakin Health Economics (DHE). She retrained as a health economist in 2016, after a career in cancer clinical trials, completing her PhD in 2022. Her PhD thesis investigated patient and clinician preferences for adjuvant immunotherapy as a treatment for melanoma skin cancer. Ann's research interests include exploring the trade-offs people are willing to make to access healthcare services and interventions. Her PhD used a Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE), a type of preference study, to inform and calculate the ‘value’ of cancer treatments to patients and clinicians. Ann has substantial expertise in consumer co-design, having worked closely with consumer groups throughout her career.
