Abstract Objective This review summarizes and critically examines methods used to generate utilities for child and adolescent health states in previous National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) technology assessments (TA) and highly specialized technology (HST) evaluations. Methods We identified all NICE TA and HST evaluations in which the licensed indication for the technology included people younger than 18 and included in the review all evaluations using a cost-utility analysis...

Abstract Objectives Five-level EuroQol 5-dimensional questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L) values for several countries now exist. Decision makers require confidence in the underlying data and statistical analyses before advocating their use. Independent quality assurance of the published English value set is reported here. Methods Data from 996 participants, and code to run published statistical models, were provided for inspection. The main elements of the study were 10 lead-time trade-off (TTO) experiment...

• Clinical trials often do not contain preference based outcome measure • Cost per QALY evaluation requires such outcomes • Linking clinical to preference based outcomes via statistical model is commonplace in economic evaluation • 22% of NICE appraisals include “mapping”, 100% in RA • Typically done using simple regression techniques • EQ-5D has an odd distribution • Standard methods perform badly • Develop and refine a new method here

Background: Ultrasonography has been the mainstay of antenatal screening programmes in the UK for many years. Technical factors and physical limitations may result in suboptimal images that can lead to incorrect diagnoses and inaccurate counselling and prognostic information being given to parents. Previous studies suggest that the addition of in utero magnetic resonance imaging (iuMRI) may improve diagnostic accuracy for fetal brain abnormalities. These studies have limitations, including a lac...

The systematic use of evidence to inform healthcare decisions, particularly health technology assessment (HTA), has gained increased recognition. HTA has become a standard policy tool for informing decision makers who must manage the entry and use of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other technologies (including complex interventions) within health systems, for example, through reimbursement and pricing. Despite increasing attention to HTA activities, there has been no attempt to comprehens...

Background The EuroQol-5 Dimension (EQ-5D) instrument is the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)’s preferred measure of health-related quality of life (QoL) in adults. The three-level (3L) value set is currently recommended for use, but the five-level (5L) set is increasingly being used in practice.

Abstract Background Preference-based measures of health, such as the three-level EuroQol five-dimensional questionnaire (EQ-5D-3L), are required to calculate quality-adjusted life-years for use in cost-effectiveness analysis, but are often not recorded in clinical studies. In these cases, mapping can be used to estimate preference-based measures. Objectives To model the relationship between the EQ-5D-3L and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy—Breast Cancer (FACT-B) instrument, comparing ...

Abstract A source of debate in the health care priority setting literature is whether to weight health gains to account for equity considerations, such as concern for those with very short life expectancy. This paper reviews the empirical evidence in the published social sciences literature relevant to the following research question: do members of the public wish to place greater weight on a unit of health gain for end-of-life patients than on that for other types of patients? An electronic sea...
