Patient Preferences for Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer Treatment Options
One of PREFER’s core case studies explored patient preferences for lung cancer treatments, assessing which trade-offs between benefit and risks related to treatment alternatives that patients are willing to accept or not. In this webinar, we describe the design of the study, its main results and lesson learnt in conducting the preference study with this vulnerable population of patients.
Patient Preferences for Antithrombotic Treatment in Acute and Chronic Phases of Myocardial Infarction
PREFER partners are contributing data from their own patient preference studies. One of these case studies explored patient preferences for treatment following a myocardial infarction (a heart attack) and how they value the benefits and risks of antithrombotic treatment at the acute and chronic stages of heart disease. In this webinar, we describe the design of the study and its main results.
Areas of Future Research in Patient Preferences
The PREFER project explored methodological questions that were considered higher priority based on discussion and ranking among stakeholders, however, we could not explore all research questions given the constraints of a 5-year time period and a finite number of case studies. This session will review topics for future research.
