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.Submit Now
