Peter Littlejohns and Albert Weale submit evidence to NICE

10 July 2014

Peter Littlejohns and Albert Weale have submitted evidence to NICE for the consultation on incorporating considerations on the burden of illness into appraisals.

News They suggest that NICE's proposal to measure the burden of illness by proportional QALY shortfall has a number of merits. And they also suggest a principle by which an appropriate weighting scheme could be justified. However, they also indicate some possible complications arising from the existence of long term chronic conditions. Their submission to NICE can be found here.
