A comprehensive assessment of the health-related quality of life in the forms of health state utility values and health dimension scores in Australian women with dementia.


Dementia, a chronic and complex disorder of brain which can negatively impact individuals, health related quality of life and poses a significant economic burden, has high prevalence in Australian.  However, little is known how different socioeconomic and clinical factors including comorbidities affect health-related quality of life (measured as health state utilities (HSUs) and health dimension scores) of these people. The study aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of the HRQoL (i.e., HSUs and health dimension scores) impacts of dementia in Australia and factors affecting these impacts to inform healthcare decision making in this space.
