Work package 3
Work package leader
The objectives, here, will be to:
- design the second main component of the survey instrument; that involving elicitation of a willingness-to-pay-based value of a QALY based on a direct contingent valuation approach; and
- pilot the instrument on 20 people in each country.
Task 3.1 - Devise a method for valuing a QALY based on a direct contingent valuation approach.
Based on work which has taken place or is ongoing in several participating countries, agreement will be reached about a common survey instrument to be administered in each country. The instrument will be translated for use in each country.
Task 3.2 - Piloting of survey instrument.
Where necessary (i.e. where recent survey work has not taken place), the instrument will be piloted by partners and their assistant in focus groups of 20 members of the public in 3-4 countries.
