Assessing quality of life through PROMs in different patient populations or away from the clinical setting poses new challenges in terms of conceptualisation and methodology but broadens applications of these outcomes for research and practice. In this talk, Dr Cate Bailey from the Health Economics Unit at the University of Melbourne will provide an overview of the use of PROMs in cost-utility analysis and challenges in obtaining relevant utilities in the social care environment. Dr Christine Mpundu-Kaambwa from the Health and Social Care Economics Group at Flinders University will discuss utility scores for children and adolescents, and practical aspects of obtaining utility-based measures.
