Photo of Jeremy TeohA collaboration between Dr Jeremy Teoh from the Chinese University of Hong Kong’s Department of Surgery and Janet Bouttell, Robert Heggie and Neil Hawkins of HEHTA bore fruit this month with the publication of a joint article.

Entitled ‘Economic evaluation of the introduction of the Prostate Health Index as a rule-out test to avoid unnecessary biopsies in men with prostate specific antigen levels of 4-10 in Hong Kong’ the study was based on fieldwork carried out in Hong Kong by Jeremy and fellow clinicians.

The collaboration came about when Jeremy visited HEHTA in September 2017 to discuss how discrete choice experiments may be applied in urology and presented some of his research to the department. The article can be viewed here.
