  1. Modelling the population health impact of musculoskeletal diseases : arthritis.

    Article - En anglais


    A model adjusting for reductions in quality and quantity of life was developed to estimate the population health impact of musculoskeletal diseases.


    Using arthritis as the prototype, prevalence, mortality, and severity data from a variety of sources were combined to model a hypothetical cohort of 1,000 individuals through life.

    Quality adjusted life years and population health expectancy were calculated for those with arthritis and compared to the general population.


    Without adjusting for quality of life, a cohort of 1,000 women and 1,000 men at age 15 years could expect 65,010 and 58,735 life years, respectively.
