Due to currently lacking internationally comparable measurement and valuation methods of resource use in the patient and family sector for mental disorders, Work Package (WP) 4 of the ProgrammE in Costing, resource use measurement and outcome valuation for Use in multi-sectoral National and International health economic evaluAtions (PECUNIA, 2018-2021) focuses on the development of these methods. The first aim of WP4 was to establish harmonised descriptions for the six participating PECUNIA countries (Austria, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom) for mental disorders. Further, a standardized patient and family domain instrument module for a multi-sectoral service and resource-use measurement (RUM) instrument was to be developed ensuring cross-country comparability and transferability. In line with the final objective of WP4, based on the identified services and their descriptions and compatible with the developed RUM instrument (Horizontal Activities 1-3, HAs1-3), a standardized costing templates for the valuation of resource use in the patient and family domain was developed in accordance with HA4 (‘Valuation’), corresponding to Deliverable 4.4.
This Deliverable 4.4 report presents the activities and results related to the final objective of WP4, i.e. the development of standardized unit cost templates for the hpatient and family secotr by the Corvinus University of Budapest and London School of Economics until December 2019.
