Discrete Choice Experiments in Health Economics

Wednesday 17th August 2011 - 09:45 to 10:30
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Choice Experiments: Theory & Background
Session Chair: 
Heiko Grossmann
Since their introduction in health economics in the early 1990s, there has been an increased interest in the use of discrete choice experiments (DCEs), both at the applied and methodological level. At the applied level, whilst the technique was introduced into health economics to go beyond narrow definitions of health benefits (Quality Adjusted Life Years, QALYs), and value broader measures of utility (patient experiences/well being), the technique is being applied to address an ever increasing range of policy questions. Methodologically developments have also been made with respect to methods for developing attributes and levels, techniques for defining choice sets to present to individuals (experimental design) and methods for analysis of response data. This talk considers the journey of DCEs in health economics, discussing both where we are, and where we should go.
