How we do it

Our Charter outlines the code of conduct and principles of co-operation for the Division of Health Economics at the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungs-zentrum, DKFZ). As such, the Charter is not primarily about "what we do," but rather about "how we do it."

Against the background of applied health economics striving to inform the sphere of policy-making, which will imply real consequences for health care systems and the provision and reimbursement coverage of services, including their pricing, we believe that our work should be guided by transparent principles and value judgments, including the following:

The Division and its work will be...

  • strictly science driven;
  • policy-relevant;
  • politically aware, without acting as a political player.

The approach of the Division can be characterized...

  • as multidisciplinary and inclusive;
  • by plurality of thought and method;
  • by openness and transparency, including the value judgments underlying its work.

The Division's modus operandi will consistently include...

  • a culture of mutual support and mentoring of young scientists;
  • ethical conduct, including adherence to "best practice" standards;
  • a process of internal quality assurance.

The Division shall hereby contribute to...

  • the advancement of applied health economics;
  • our understanding of the economics of cancer care;
  • improvements of the effectiveness and efficiency of medical care for cancer patients.

For additional information or to request a copy of the Charter please contact Katrin Eike-Verfürth.
