Published in Medical Care [open access] is a paper reporting a multi-country pilot study investigating the feasibility of using discrete choice experiments (DCE) to value EQ-5D-5L health states. The study consisted of arms in Canada, England, the Netherlands and the United States, with the English arm led by Koonal Shah and Prof Nancy Devlin of OHE. The values elicited were similar across the four countries. The authors conclude that it is feasible to derive EQ-5D-5L valuations using computer-based discrete choice experiment tasks.
Other papers arising from the multi-country pilot study were published in a special issue of the European Journal of Health Economics [open access], co-edited by Nancy Devlin and Paul Krabbe.
