Brazier JE, Knight H, Wolowacz SE. Including caregiver / family member quality of life in economic evaluations – your questions answered. Presented at the ISPOR 2019 European Conference; November 6, 2019. Copenhagen, Denmark.

PURPOSE:  Many health conditions have profound impacts on the quality of life of informal caregivers and family members which may be alleviated by effective treatment. However, our ability to capture these benefits in economic evaluations is hindered by uncertainty about decision-makers’ attitudes toward their inclusion, issues related to how they may be incorporated into economic models, and the availability of suitable utility data and measures for caregivers / family members. This workshop aims to answer common questions related to these issues and discuss questions and experience from the audience, as well as to outline ongoing research in the field.
