Measuring and valuing paediatric health related quality of life for use in economic evaluation: Issues and solutions

21 March @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+10

An upcoming workshop on

Measuring and valuing paediatric health related quality of life for use in economic evaluation: Issues and solutions

Date:  21st March, 2024

Venue:  Aerial Function Centre, UTS, Sydney

 

There are a set of well established tools that are used to inform Government decision making about what interventions and treatments to fund. However, approaches to measuring and valuing health-related quality of life (HRQoL) that are widely used and accepted in adults are problematic when applied to paediatric populations. Therefore there has been low uptake of these tools in the evidence used to inform healthcare decisions which risks misallocation of funds, potentially denying access to effective and cost-effective paediatric interventions.

 

This one day workshop will focus on cutting edge research being done by two MRFF funded projects (QUOKKA and TORCH) to resolve these issues, and develop and refine methods for the measurement and valuation of child health. This will include presentations by the project teams, consumers, policy makers, and PhD students.

 

There will also be a panel discussion focused on policy issues relating to the allocation of health resources to paediatric populations.
