Tasks

Task 3.1 - Devise a method for valuing a QALY based on a direct contingent valuation approach.

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.
