Abstract

Although condition-specific measures are commonly used in dementia, they cannot be used in analyses of cost per quality-adjusted life-year because they do not incorporate preferences. We addressed this gap by estimating two preference-based single index measures: the DEMQOL-U from the self-report DEMQOL (mild-to-moderate dementia severity) and the DEMQOL-Proxy-U from the carer-report DEMQOL-Proxy (all levels of dementia severity).
