Summary

Can quality-adjusted life years be considered ‘fair’, and are they 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 life span and perceived quality of life in order to be able to compare this to the cost of the treatment. The promise of a new, possible treatment is thereby compared to the presently recommended treatment: Do we get more “health for our money” by implementing a new treatment?

QALY is already used in several countries, but what implications does it have in a Danish context and as support in the Danish Medicines Council’s process?

At this course, a representative from the Danish Medicines Council Secretariat presents the new guideline for process and method, expected to come into force on 1 January 2021. You also learn about the most important changes, and about how companies should apply according to the new method.

In addition, we present concrete examples of cost-utility analyses in a Danish context and answer questions like: How do we actually measure QALYs?
