Abstract

Objectives The aim of this study was to test the feasibility of estimating preference weights for all health states defined by the Child Health Utility 9D (CHU9D), a new generic measure of health related quality of life for children. This will allow the calculation of quality adjusted life years (QALYs) for use in paediatric economic evaluation. Methods Valuation interviews were undertaken with 300 members of the UK adult general population using standard gamble and ranking valuation methods. Regression modelling was undertaken to estimate models that could predict a value for every health state defined by the CHU9D. A range of models were tested and evaluated based on their predictive performance. Results Models estimated on the standard gamble data performed better than the rank model. All models had a few inconsistencies or insignificant levels and so further modelling was done to estimate a parsimonious consistent regression model, by combining inconsistent levels and removing non significant levels. The final preferred model was an OLS model where all coefficients were significant, there were no inconsistencies and the model had the best predictive performance. Conclusion This research has demonstrated it is feasible to value the CHU9D descriptive system and preference weights for each health state can be generated to allow the calculation of QALYs. The CHU9D can now be used in the economic evaluation of paediatric health care interventions. Further research is needed to investigate the impact of children’s preferences for the health states and what methods could be used to obtain these preferences.
