Opportunity costs of implementing NICE decisions in NHS Wales
Speaking in Cardiff on 9 December 2014, OHE’s Jon Sussex delivered a presentation titled “Opportunity costs of implementing NICE decisions in NHS Wales”. The presentation covered the findings reported in the OHE research paper with the same title [OHE Research paper 14/02].
This presentation was part of the “Medicines Knowledge Base” series of lunchtime briefing seminars organised by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI). The audience of 15 included researchers/advisers and members of the National Assembly.
Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG) Meeting, Winter 2015
Amanda Chapman, Yan Feng, and Sarah Karlsberg Schaffer of OHE attended the Winter HESG meeting held in Leeds, 7-9 January 2015.
Amanda discussed a paper titled “Estimates of country-level cost-effectiveness thresholds (and the need for further research to guide priorities in healthcare spending)” written by Beth Woods, Paul Revill, Mark Sculpher and Karl Claxton of the University of York. By emphasising that thresholds should be based on forgone benefit rather than aspiration alone, the authors set out a method by which empirical estimates of opportunity cost from the English NHS might be extrapolated to other countries.
Yan discussed work written by Panagiotis Kasteridis, Anne Mason, Maria Goddard, Rowena Jacobs, Rita Santos, Beatriz Rodriguez-Sanchez, all of the University of York. The title of the paper was “Care home placement following hospital admission: dose the quality of primary care for people with dementia matter?”.
Sarah discussed a paper with the title “Substitutes or Complements? Formal and co-residential informal care amongst individuals whose daily activities are limited”, which estimates the relationship between the two types of care using data from the British Household Panel Survey. This paper was written by Sean Urwin, Thomas Mason, Yiu-Shing Lau, and Matthew Sutton of the University of Manchester.
