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.
Koonal presented the methods and findings of a review of the published literature relevant to the following research question: Do members of the general public wish to place greater weight on a unit of health gain for end of life patients than on that for other types of patients?
Martina chaired an organised session entitled ‘MCDA for setting priorities in health care – introduction, opportunities and challenges’. The session was organised by Rob Baltussen, with Mireille Goetghebeur (University of Montreal) and Norman Daniels (Harvard School of Public Health) as contributors.
provided an overview on the use of multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) to inform coverage decisions;
showed how MCDA can enable decision makers to consider a broad range of criteria including ethical considerations; and
explored the concept of reflective MCDA in support of fair process in priority setting.
One of the key points explained and supported by the speakers was that MCDA is not just a mathematical solution but a decision aid that can guide deliberation processes.
