OHE’s Amanda Cole, Nancy Devlin, Yan Feng, Mike Herdman and Koonal Shah all contributed to the 33rd Plenary Meeting of the EuroQol Group in Berlin.

The Office of Health Economics (OHE) and the Swedish Institute for Health Economics (IHE) publish a report evaluating the efficiency of resource allocation in cancer care across Europe.

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.

On Wednesday 21st September, Professor Philip Clarke from the University of Melbourne will lead an OHE Lunchtime Seminar on the topic of: Health Economic Evaluation throughout the Ages.

OHE has just published two new briefings entitled ‘New Age Decision Making in HTA’ and ‘How Can HTA in Asia-Pacific Respond to Increased Clinical Uncertainty as a Consequence of Expedited US and EU Regulatory Processes?’. Both publications are reports of panel sessions held at the HTAi 2016 meeting in Tokyo.

Briefing
August 2016

This report provides a detailed summary of a panel session which took place at the HTAi 2016 annual meeting in Tokyo. The panel session was entitled "New Age Decision Making in HTA: Is It Applicable in Asia?". To open the session, David Grainger (Eli Lilly & Company) provided an overview of the session, offering useful background information on the topic. 

Responses on subjective scales (like the EQ-5D) will be inaccurate if groups systematically differ in their use and/or interpretation of the categories. Anchoring vignettes offer a promising solution to reporting heterogeneity.

On Wednesday 21st September, Professor Philip Clarke from the University of Melbourne will lead an OHE Lunchtime Seminar on the topic of: Health Economic Evaluation throughout the Ages.

OHE is pleased to be working with four MSc students this year. The students, from City University and the London School of Economics, will spend three months at OHE being supervised and trained by various members of the OHE team whilst completing their MSc theses.

OHE is set to work on seven new projects funded by the EuroQol Research Foundation. The work will cover a range of topics from understanding the aspects of health that are important to people, to analysing the distribution of EQ-5D observations, to exploring the appropriateness of the EQ‐5D questionnaire in Asian populations.
