BACKGROUND The EQ-5D is a preference based instrument which provides a description of a respondent's health status, and an empirically derived value for that health state often from a representative sample of the general population. It is commonly used to derive Quality Adjusted Life Year calculations (QALY) in economic evaluations. However, values for(More)
BACKGROUND Overweight and obese persons are at risk of a number of medical conditions which can lead to further morbidity and mortality. The primary objective of this study is to provide an estimate of the incidence of each co-morbidity related to obesity and overweight using a meta-analysis. METHODS A literature search for the twenty co-morbidities(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the lost investment of domestically educated doctors migrating from sub-Saharan African countries to Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The use of meta-analysis has become increasingly useful for clinical and policy decision making. A recent development in meta-analysis, multiple treatment comparison (MTC) meta-analysis, provides inferences on the comparative effectiveness of interventions that may have never been directly evaluated in clinical trials. This new approach may be confusing for(More)
INTRODUCTION The Work Productivity and Activity Impairment (WPAI) questionnaire is a well validated instrument to measure impairments in work and activities. However, its validation among patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has not been well established. The present study's purpose is to evaluate the construct validity of the WPAI-general health version(More)
BACKGROUND The expected value of partial perfect information (EVPPI) is a theoretically justifiable and informative measure of uncertainty in decision-analytic cost-effectiveness models, but its calculation is computationally intensive because it generally requires two-level Monte Carlo simulation. We introduce an efficient, one-level simulation method for(More)
BACKGROUND The 5-level version of the EQ-5D (EQ-5D-5L) was recently developed. A number of preference-based scoring systems are being developed for several countries around the world. OBJECTIVE To develop a value set for the EQ-5D-5L based on societal preferences in Canada. METHODS We used age, sex, and education quota sampling from the general(More)
BACKGROUND Health state valuation exercises can be conducted online, but the quality of data generated is unclear. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether responses to binary choice health state valuation questions differ by administration mode: online versus face to face. METHODS Identical surveys including demographic, self-reported health status, and seven(More)

OBJECTIVES To value health resource utilisation and productivity losses in DESIR, a longitudinal French cohort of 708 patients with early spondyloarthritis (SpA) enrolled between 2007 and 2010, and identify factors associated with costs in the first 3 years of follow-up. METHODS Self-reported clinical data from DESIR and French public data were used to(More)
