BACKGROUND Unipolar depression is a mental illness with a substantial health-related and economic burden. Health interventions for depression predominately focus on improving sufferers' health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Utility is a measure of HRQoL that is required for use in model-based cost-utility analyses to assess the added value of health(More)
BACKGROUND Cleft lip and palate are among the most common congenital malformations, with an incidence of around 1 in 700. Cleft palate (CP) results in impaired Eustachian tube function, and 90% of children with CP have otitis media with effusion (OME) histories. There are several approaches to management, including watchful waiting, the provision of hearing(More)
There is a paucity of evidence to guide the management of otitis media with effusion (OME), which is a common problem causing significant hearing impairment in children with cleft palate. The insertion of grommets is currently being used to correct hearing impairment and prevent complications of unmanaged OME, but there is ongoing discussion about whether(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to identify and critically appraise the use of Value of Information (VOI) analyses undertaken as part of health technology assessment (HTA) reports in England and Wales. METHODS A systematic review of National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded HTA reports published between 2004 and 2013 identified the use of(More)
BACKGROUND The surgical insertion of Ventilation Tubes (VTs) for the management of persistent bilateral Otitis Media with Effusion (OME) in children remains a contentious issue due to the varying opinions regarding the risks and benefits of this procedure. The aim of this study was to evaluate the economic impact of VTs insertion for the management of(More)
This paper describes the role of mathematical modelling in the design and evaluation of an automated system of wearable and environmental sensors called PAM (Personalised Ambient Monitoring) to monitor the activity patterns of patients with bipolar disorder (BD). The modelling work was part of an EPSRC-funded project, also involving biomedical engineers and(More)
BACKGROUND Bipolar disorder (BD) is a chronic and relapsing mental illness with a considerable health-related and economic burden. The primary goal of pharmacotherapeutics for BD is to improve patients' well-being. The use of decision-analytic models is key in assessing the added value of the pharmacotherapeutics aimed at treating the illness, but concerns(More)
