HEDS have published a new paper by Dr Katherine Stevens, Professor John Brazier and Dr Donna Rowen titled 'Estimating an exchange rate between the EQ-5D-3L and ASCOT'

Professor John Brazier said: "How do health and social care QALYs compare? Using preference-based mapping we found moving from ASCOT to EQ-5D-3L TTO value sets is a linear transformation with an intercept of −0.0488 and gradient of 0.978."

The paper has been published in European Journal of Health Economics
