EQ-5D and PROMs

OHE at the PROMs Research Conference 2017 (Advances in Patient Reported Outcomes Research)

A new OHE Research Paper entitled “Age and Utilities: Issues for HTA” is available to download.

OHE’s Yan Feng, Mike Herdman, David Parkin and Nancy Devlin have a new paper in Quality of Life Research to exploring whether patients’ self-reported pain can be compared and aggregated in multi-country studies

OHE’s Nancy Devlin, Yan Feng, Mike Herdman and Koonal Shah all contributed to the EuroQol Academy Meeting 2017.

There are three EQ-5D value sets available for use in cost effectiveness analysis in the UK and/or England:

- the UK EQ-5D-3L value set (often called the ‘MVH’ value set) which has been used for two decades, e.g. in evidence submitted to NICE (Dolan, 1997);
- a ‘crosswalk’ value set (van Hout et al., 2012), which maps patients’ EQ-5D-5L data to the EQ-5D-3L descriptive system, so that the MVH value set can be applied; and
- the EQ-5D-5L value set for England (Devlin et al., 2016).

How do these value sets differ? And how important are these differences likely to be for users?

A new OHE Research Paper by Mulhern et al. (2017) compares the characteristics of the value sets.

OHE’s Professor Nancy Devlin and co-author Richard Brooks have published a new paper that provides an overview of the development of the EQ-5D; the current state of play; and what the future might hold for the further development and use of EQ-5D instruments in HTA and other applications.

OHE’s Yan Feng becomes a member of the EuroQol Research Foundation.

New OHE Research Paper: What is the normative basis for selecting the measure of ‘average’ preferences for use in social choices?

This early view paper published in Quality of Life Research compares a condition-specific preference based measure to a generic measure in a population of cancer patients.

The HESG Winter 2017 Conference is to be held in Birmingham from 4th to 6th January 2017. Several members of the OHE team will be attending and contributing to the conference. This post contains a summary of their activity.
