Reviews

<p>From the reviews<p> This short volume will be of great value to methodologists seeking to understand the valuation systems that underlie the EQ-5D. It's user-friendly organization will assist analysts and other members of the health services research community in determining appropriate valuation sets for studies that rely on the EuroQol instrument. (Marthe Gold, (Logan) Professor of Community Health and Social Medicine, City University of New York Medical School, USA)<p> This book usefully draws together, for the first time, information on the EuroQol Group's value sets of estimated utilities around the world. An important contribution of this book is that analysts now can - and should - use its reporting of the many value sets available to check the extent to which an estimate of the QALY gain of an intervention varies when different sets of estimated utilities are used .
