  1. Cost-utility analysis of group living in dementia care.

    Article - En anglais

    A cost-utility analysis (CUA) was applied to group living for dementia patients.

    A Markov-model of an expected life-length of 8 years was used.

    Forty-six patients in group living were compared to 39 patients living at home by inclusion and 23 institutionalized patients.

    When the cost per gained quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) was calculated, the group living alternative was the most favorable for the patients, giving a cost per paired QALY of US dollars<0. In the extensive sensitivity analysis the main result was consistent but methodological problems were indicated.
