Quality-adjusted life-years for the estimation of effectiveness of screening programs: a systematic literature review
International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care, 04/27/2012
Maklin S et al. – The use of QALYs in the evaluation of screening programs has expanded during the last few years. However, only a minority of studies have used HRQoL data derived from patients, using direct or indirect valuation. Further investigation and harmonization of the methodology in evaluation of screening programs is needed to ensure better comparability across different screening programs.
