The ‘wheelchair example’ – why it should be dropped from EQ-5D valuation tasks
The Academic Health Economists' Blog
by Nancy Devlin

The EQ Valuation Technology (EQ-VT) protocol has been widely used in the valuation of EuroQol instruments, including in over 25 national EQ-5D-5L value sets and, in an adapted form, the valuation of EQ-5D-Y-3L. Adapted versions of it are also currently being used for the valuation of EQ Health and Wellbeing (EQ-HWB). The depth of experience with using EQ-VT means that it represents a mature technology. However, as with any scientific endeavour, there is scope to strengthen existing approaches. The EuroQol Group is open to ideas about improving methods and is committed to transparency about the ..read more

Meeting round-up: EuHEA Conference 2022
The Academic Health Economists' Blog
by Abraham Makanjuola
1M ago
The 2022 session of the European Health Economics Association (EuHEA) took place from 5th to 8th July and was hosted by the University of Oslo. The conference theme was Health Economics for Sustainable Welfare Systems. This was my second health economics conference attendance, which took place little more than a week after I attended HESG. The rationale for this vlog was to provide a more immersive account of the conference proceedings from an early career researcher (ECR) perspective. Given that this was an international conference, I also took time to share some of my cultural excursions aro ..read more

The summer 2022 meeting of the UK Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG) took place from 22nd to 24th June and was hosted by the University of Sheffield.

As a result, I decided to vlog the conference proceedings to provide a more immersive account of the events. As an early career researcher (ECR), it was my first time attending any Health Economics related conference. I did not know what to expect, and ..read more

Meeting round-up: ISPOR Annual 2022
The Academic Health Economists' Blog
by Chris Sampson

There’s a popular theory in the punk rock community, that the best music is made in the worst times. Could the same apply to the work of the health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) community? ISPOR is by no means a radical organisation. But this meeting, more than any ISPOR meeting I’ve attended before, tried to tackle some genuinely difficult problems, and there was a clear willingness to think outside the box. My take on the meeting depends on my choice of sessions; others may have been playing the same old tunes. Nevertheless, here is what I found interesting about ISPOR 2022. For the ..read more
