Applications of Health Preference Research

Although there has been a fundamental shift in the expected use of heath preferences, we still know very little about the way patients, clinicians, and regulators process, understand, and make decisions about health and healthcare. These decisions are complex, involving trade-offs between multiple— often conflicting—objectives.

The decision-making process involves value judgements about whether the benefits of an alternative are substantial enough to tolerate the associated risks or costs. Health preference studies examine choices that affect health or healthrelated products and services. Understanding these preferences is essential for the efficient delivery and valuation of healthcare.

Submissions received before October 15, 2019 will have the best chance of inclusion in this themed section. Final decisions regarding ultimate acceptance rest solely with the Editors.

Authors should submit manuscripts through the journal’s web-based tracking system and be sure to note in their cover letters that the paper is to be considered for the Health Preference Research themed section.

Opioid Misuse: A Global Crisis

Recent trends in opioids have changed policy discussions of drug use from that of a problem—or an epidemic—to a global crisis. An estimated 27 million people suffered in 2016 from opioid use disorders. Globally, approximately 450,000 people died as a result of drug use in 2015 and about 160,000 were directly associated with drug use disorders; 118,000 dying with a opioid use disorder.

Recognizing the urgent need to address this public health crisis and the meaningful expertise that ISPOR members can make to research effective and efficient solutions, the Editors of Value in Health are issuing an open Call for Papers on a wide array of topics that could inform policy and healthcare decision making in solving the global opioid crisis.

Submissions received before March 1, 2020 have the best chance of being included in this themed section. Final decisions regarding ultimate acceptance rest solely with the Editors.

Authors should submit manuscripts through the journal’s web-based tracking system and be sure to classify their submissions as Opioid Crisis themed section.

Methodological and Policy Aspects Related to Health Economic Evaluations for Vaccines

Vaccines reflect one of the most effective interventions in prevention. In recent years, the growth in introduction, uptake, and coverage of vaccines has lagged behind or even reversed due to specific trends in societies (eg, vaccine hesitancy, potential distrust in producers, conceived high prices and rumored side effects, etc). As this is a multidimensional problem that requires a broad multidisciplinary approach, Value in Health aims to compile a special collection of papers on the health technology assessment of vaccination strategies to inform decision making, including its effectiveness, safety, cost-effectiveness, population impacts, prioritization, affordability, acceptability and sustainability. This themed section aims to bring together papers on sophisticated models for vaccine health technology assessment -evaluations in national immunization technical advisory groups.

Submissions received before January 1, 2020 will have the best chance of being included in this themed section in Value in Health. Final decisions regarding ultimate acceptance rest solely with the Editors.

Authors should submit manuscripts through our web-based tracking system and indicate in the cover letter that it is part of the “Vaccines” themed section.
