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.
