Can quality-adjusted life years be considered 'fair' and is there a better and more consistent basis for assessing whether there is a reasonable relationship between cost and effect of a treatment or drug?

The purpose of QALY is to show the impact that a treatment has on the life span, while considering changes in health-related quality of life. A QALY calculation can be used to show the relationship between the patient’s perceived quality of life and quantity with and without the treatment in question. QALY is already used in the healthcare system as one of the measures to support decision on reimbursement or recommendations. But what significance does it have in a Danish context and as support in a medicine council process?

In this Hot Topic seminar we will give you concrete examples of cost-utility analysis – showing the relation between costs and effects measured in quality-adjusted life-years of a treatment or drug as well as answer questions like

- How do we actually measure QALYs?

- How do you incorporate QALYs in your clinical data?

If you want a basic understanding of QALY as a health economic assessment model and hence possible support tools for e.g. the Medicine Council this seminar is for you!
