A special issue of the Journal of Cancer Policy entitled ‘Value and Cancer’ includes three papers authored by OHE researchers.

A new OHE Research Paper assesses the nature of evidence used to reach HTA decisions which NICE have classified as “Recommended in Line with Clinical Practice” between 2007 and mid-2016. The level of patient access associated with these decisions has also been assessed.

OHE has published a new report discussing a framework to help middle-income countries efficiently identify medicines for formulary inclusion. A second publication applies this framework to the Mexican decision making system as a case study.

This paper uses MCDA to obtain preferences on decision criteria across three stakeholder groups (patients, clinicians and payers) in Italy and then uses these preferences to assess the value of obinutuzumab for rituximab-refractory iNHL.

A new OHE Research Paper has just been published on the topic of uncertainty and risk in health technology assessment (HTA) decision making. The report is concerned with uncertainty as it affects the cost effectiveness aspects of HTA.

Rachel Baker of Glasgow Caledonian University and Koonal Shah of OHE discussed societal viewpoints regarding end of life treatments at a recent seminar.
