Measuring utility based health states amongst service users and the general population

12.45pm

Seminars

Staff, Students, Academics

Speakers: Dr Chris Flood, Dr Sally Barlow

Series: This seminar is jointly presented by the Centre for Mental Health Research and the Joint Institute for Mental Health Nursing, as part of the School of Health Sciences seminar series

This seminar will present an online survey study which sought to score five different health states amongst service users and the general public for comparative purposes. The study aimed to establish if service users would be able and willing to use certain methodologies currently used to assist decision making in health care, namely the standard gamble for assessing attitudes to risk and the time trade off, which is used for assessing individual attitudes for trading hypothetical life years for better health. The presenters will report the findings from the study and discuss the feasibility of direct service user measurement, as well as the challenges of doing so and why it is important to get health state evaluation scores from people that have real lived experiences of mental health problems.
