OHE Lunchtime Seminar: Valuing Children’s Health for Economic Evaluation

OHE Lunchtime Seminar with Oliver Rivero-Arias on Valuing Children’s Health for Economic Evaluation. To be held on 29th March 2018 from 12pm to 2pm.
Economic evaluations of treatments for children have primarily used adult preferences when estimating health benefits using multi-attribute utility measures. Recent work has demonstrated that using adult value sets to inform preferences for health states experienced by children or adolescents is not appropriate, and this has raised doubts about the validity of such economic evaluations. Eliciting preferences to be used to inform decisions about health care for younger populations is challenging and poses normative questions of whose values should be collected and from which perspective.
Oliver Rivero-Arias is Associate Professor in Health Economics and leads the health economics team at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unity, University of Oxford. His research interests concern the evaluation of cost-effective interventions that seek to improve care to women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth, the newborn period and early childhood. He has conducted EQ-5D-5L valuation exercises in different countries and is one of the principal investigators, in collaboration with OHE colleagues, of the project to obtain an EQ-5D-Y value set for the UK, funded by the EuroQol Research Foundation. 
This seminar will report on the results of two valuation exercises for EQ-5D-Y health states, comparing preferences elicited from adolescents and adults in the UK and Spain using discrete choice experiment and best-worst scaling methods.
