The fourth annual meeting of the HTAi Asia Policy Forum was held in November 2016. OHE produced Background Briefing Papers for each of these four meetings covering a variety of topics relevant to the development of HTA in Asia, all of which are now available. This post contains a summary of each report.
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
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.
On Thursday 16th March, OHE's Nancy Devlin will lead an educational webinar, in collaboration with Kevin Marsh and Praveen Thokala, on Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis for Health Care Decision Making - Emerging Good Practices.
Just published is a new OHE Consulting Report entitled: Exploring the Assessment and Appraisal of Regenerative Medicines and Cell Therapy Products: Is the NICE Approach Fit for Purpose? The purpose of the new OHE report is to explore a review exercise undertaken by NICE and the University of York and to assess whether or not the resulting conclusions are appropriate.
