The Future of Health Preferences in Regulatory and Clinical Decisions

For those who are interested, Duke will be hosting a “Patient Voice” webinar on Tuesday at 17:00.

This presentation will give an overview of recent advances in health preference research. Specifically, it will show how the estimation of QALYs has evolved to incorporate time preferences; review the potential implication of PDUFA IV for benefit-risk analyses; discuss the importance of perspective in preference research (e.g., patient, societal, etc.); and introduce emerging infrastructure designed to advance support tools in preference-sensitive decisions, promoting clinical relevance. This presentation is for students, clinicians and scientists interested in health preference research and will aid understanding of ongoing research, educational, and policy initiatives as well as the state of the science and practice.
