Koonal spoke on the topic of valuing health in children. He discussed some of the normative, perspective and methodological issues associated with this kind of health valuation research. He then presented an overview of recent research undertaken to generate values for the EQ-5D-Y, a preference-based measure of health outcomes developed for children and adolescents aged between 8 and 15 years. Koonal focused in particular on a study seeking to compare the preferences held by adults (considering the health of a child) with those held by adolescents (considering their own health).
The research presented was undertaken in collaboration with Oliver Rivero-Arias (University of Oxford), Nancy Devlin (University of Melbourne), Juan Manuel Ramos-Goñi (Axentiva), David Mott (Evidera), and Simone Kreimeier (University of Bielefeld). Koonal and Oliver recently presented on the same topic at a NICE Technical Forum.
