Meet some of the OHE team at any of three conferences taking place from 20-22 June: HESG, AES, and the PROMS Research Conference.
Meet some of the OHE team at any of three conferences taking place from 20-22 June: the UK Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG), the Spanish Health Economics Association (AES), and the PROMS Research Conference.
Plenary: Opportunities and Challenges of Brexit for Health Economists
[Wednesday, 18:30-19:30, Forest Room]
The summer 2018 HESG plenary will be on the subject of ‘Brexit’ and will be delivered by Paula, Ellen Rule
, and Andrew Street
Paper: Valuing the EQ-5D-Y Using a Discrete Choice Experiment: Do Adult and Adolescent Preferences Differ?
[Wednesday, 15:30-16:25, Birch]
David’s paper on the generation of an EQ-5D-Y value set will be discussed at the conference by Caroline Clarke
. The paper describes an online survey with a representative sample of adults and a representative sample of adolescents, enabling the authors to compare preferences between the groups.
Paper: Do EQ-5D-3L and EQ-5D-5L Capture the Same Changes in Quality of Life Over Time? A Longitudinal Study of Cancer Patients
[Thursday, 14:30-15:25, Birch]
Paula’s paper, which will be discussed by Annie Hawton
, describes an analysis of data from a cohort of cancer patients that switched from using the EQ-5D-3L to the EQ-5D-5L. The study provides insights into the implications of using the EQ-5D-5L instead of the EQ-5D-3L, and how this could influence the estimation of treatment effects.
Members of the OHE team will also chair and discuss at sessions for other delegates’ papers, including:
- Discussion: Measuring QALYs When Health States Fluctuate (Sanghera & Coast)
- Discussion: A Novel Way of Anchoring Discrete Choice Experiments Valuing EQ-5D Health States (Webb et al)
- Chair: Exploring the Factors That Influence Workforce Participation of People with Multiple Sclerosis: A Discrete Choice Experiment (Goodwin et al)
Poster Session: Quality of Life and Preferences
[Wednesday, 13:15-14:15, Tenerife]
Patricia will moderate this poster session exploring quality of life in different patient groups and preferences for different health care services.
Oral presentation: R&D, Competition and Diffusion of Innovation in the EU: The Case of Direct Acting Antivirals (DAAs) for Hepatitis C
[Wednesday, 15:15-16:45, Gran Canaria]
Mikel will present on the role of incentives for R&D and market competition in access to DAAs in Europe, as well as the potential additional factors including health system capacity, healthcare policies and societal barriers that could also affect access.
Panel Session: Evaluation of Health Policies and Services
[Thursday, 11:30-13:00, Tenerife]
Patricia will chair this panel session organised on behalf of EvaluAES. The session will include research on economic evaluation and health technology assessment in a variety of settings.
Oral Presentation: Comparing the EQ-5D-3L and EQ-5D-5L in a Cohort of Cancer Patients
[Thursday, 16:15-17:45, La Palma]
This presentation, delivered by Patricia, will describe ongoing work exploring the consequences of adopting the EQ-5D-5L (rather than the EQ-5D-3L) in the context of treatments for cancer.
Oral Presentation: Estimating the Effect of Personal Experience and Vicarious Experience on Time Trade-off Valuations of Health States: A Multi-country Comparison
[Thursday, 16:15-17:45, La Palma]
Patricia will also present on research that seeks to estimate the effect of different forms of experience on health state valuations following the time trade-off (TTO) protocol. The analysis uses the TTO value sets for EQ-5D-3L health profiles of UK, Netherlands, Denmark and Spain.
Other sessions at AES with OHE’s work, presented by collaborators, include:
- Oral Presentation: Adapting to Health States: Evidence from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA)
- Poster Presentation: Issues on the Estimation of the Opportunity Cost Threshold Value
- Oral Presentation: Estimating Latent Scale Utilities to Develop and EQ-5D-Y Value Set in the UK: A Comparison of Discrete Choice Models
Oral Presentation: Valuing the EQ-5D-Y Using a Discrete Choice Experiment: Do Adult and Adolescent Preferences Differ?
Koonal will discuss findings from this ongoing study, comparing values derived for EQ-5D-Y states using preference data from adults and from adolescents.
Oral Presentation: What Outcomes Matter in Cancer? A Literature Review
Amanda will present research seeking to understand what outcomes are important to patients with cancer, including clinical measures, social outcome measures (e.g. return to work), patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) including patient reported experience measures, or other patient defined measures.
