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

On Wednesday 21st September 2016, Professor Philip Clarke from the University of Melbourne led an OHE Lunchtime Seminar on the topic of: Health Economic Evaluation throughout the Ages.

Just published is a new OHE Research paper entitled ‘The Distribution of the EQ-5D-5L Index in Patient Populations’.

OHE’s annual lecture 2016 will be held on Monday 7 November at the Royal College of Physicians, London. The lecture will be given by Professor Dame Sally Davies on the topic of 10 years of NIHR: Achievements and challenges for the next decade.

OHE’s Amanda Cole, Nancy Devlin, Yan Feng, Mike Herdman and Koonal Shah all contributed to the 33rd Plenary Meeting of the EuroQol Group in Berlin.

OHE’s Koonal Shah presented findings from his review of public preferences regarding end of life treatments at the Priorities 2016 conference in Birmingham. Martina Garau chaired a session on MCDA for priority setting in health care.

Responses on subjective scales (like the EQ-5D) will be inaccurate if groups systematically differ in their use and/or interpretation of the categories. Anchoring vignettes offer a promising solution to reporting heterogeneity.

OHE is pleased to be working with four MSc students this year. The students, from City University and the London School of Economics, will spend three months at OHE being supervised and trained by various members of the OHE team whilst completing their MSc theses.

OHE is set to work on seven new projects funded by the EuroQol Research Foundation. The work will cover a range of topics from understanding the aspects of health that are important to people, to analysing the distribution of EQ-5D observations, to exploring the appropriateness of the EQ‐5D questionnaire in Asian populations.

The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, in conjunction with the Office of Health Economics, invites you to register for a webinar on Monday 18th July: New EQ-5D-5L value sets for England and the UK and implications for HTA.
