Valuing paediatric preference-based measures: using a discrete choice experiment with duration to value the CHU-9D

Thursday 16 November 2017, 12.15PM to 1.15pm

Speaker: Dr Donna Rowen, ScHARR, The University of Sheffield

Abstract: The quality adjustment weight of the QALY is often generated using an existing generic preference-based measure such as the EQ-5D or SF-6D, but these measures were developed for adults and are not intended for use in children. Currently four paediatric preference-based measures are available, including the CHU-9D, yet there is no consensus around how paediatric measures should be valued. This seminar will explore the valuation of paediatric measures using a case study of the valuation of the CHU-9D in the Netherlands. An online survey was conducted using a discrete choice experiment (DCE) including a duration attribute with adult members of the Netherlands general population (n=1,276). Respondents were asked which health state they prefer, after imagining that they themselves were in each state, and were not informed that the health state was paediatric. Normative questions are raised around the valuation of paediatric preference-based measures.
