Michele Tansella

We are very sad to hear of the death of Professor Michele Tansella. He was an inspirational leader of both research and practice, especially in community psychiatry, at the University of Verona. Some of us in PSSRU were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to collaborate in research with him, to experience his wonderful hospitality in Verona, and to laugh with him. A truly lovely man.

A new study of 15 European countries, including the UK, by Dr Joan Costa-i-Font| shows that older parents are boycotting the development of long-term care funding and insurance, fearing their children will relinquish all responsibility for looking after them in their old age. Dr Costa-i-Font says people need to adjust their expectations of family responsibility to become more in tune with reality so that much-needed reforms in the aged care sector can be pursued.

An event to mark the 10th anniversary of Health Economics Policy and Law will take place at the London School of Economics from 18:00 - 19:45 on Thursday 22 October 2015. The programme will begin with some words about HEPL from Patrick McCartan of Cambridge University Press. There will then be short statements from some of the members of HEPL’s International Advisory Board on what they think the biggest challenges will be in health care policy, either from the perspective of their own country or internationally, over the next 10 years. The presenters reflect the mix of disciplinary perspectives on which HEPL focuses (i.e. economics, political science and law).

Health Effects of Unemployment Benefit Program Generosity|

Men who lose their job in US states that provide generous unemployment benefits are at lower risk of poor health, according to research published on Thursday 18 December in the American Journal of Public Health and which was led by Jonathan Cylus of LSE Health and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies. The researchers found that while there is an increased risk of reporting poor health for men who experience job loss, men who lost their job in states and years with comparatively more generous unemployment benefits had a statistically lower likelihood of reporting poor health.
