In an article in Health Economics, Prof Devlin and her co-authors demonstrate the promise of using Lead Time TTO to value health 'state worse than death'. They demonstrate the potential advantages of the approach and identify important next steps in developing the methodology.

The 13 April OHE Lunchtime Seminar with Prof William Comanor was attended by about 40 people, hailing from academia, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, consultancies, physicians’ associations, and government.

The OHE has won a £325,000 grant from the UK Department of Health that focuses on developing a new health status index – the 5 level EQ-5D --that will capture smaller changes in health related quality of life.
