  1. Toward quality assurance in qaly calculations.

    Article - En anglais

    The utility weights that are used in published scientific articles for assessing benefits in terms of quality-adjusted life-years gained often have a weak theoretical and empirical basis.

    To a large extent, the weights seem to be used without critical thought and sensible discussion.

    In a majority of cases, the sensitivity of the results to the weights that have been chosen is not demonstrated, and readers are not provided with information in a way that facilitates independent calculations.

    This paper calls for a standard for future publications.
