Details of stated preference projects in HERU’s research themes
Stated Preference methods are applied in each of the HERU research themes. Details are given below of projects from the Assessment of Technologies, Health Behaviour and Inequality and Workforce and Organisation of Care themes which apply stated preference methods.
Research within the Assessment of Technologies theme applies stated preference methods to value outcomes and to incorporate these values into a cost-benefit analysis. Current and recent studies include:
Adjustable anchored single-incision mini-slings versus standard tension-free mid-urethral slings in the surgical management Of female stress urinary incontinence: a pragmatic multi-centre non-inferiority randomised controlled trial (the SIMS Trial)
eiTher Haemmorrhoidectomy or Stapled haemmorrhoidopexy for haemmorrhoidal disease: a pragmatic multi-centre randomised controlled trial comparing stapled haemorrhoidopexy to conventional excisional haemorrhoidectomy (eTHoS)
Improving the Quality of Dentistry: a randomised controlled trial comparing oral hygiene advice and periodontal instrumentation for the prevention and management of periodontal disease in dentate adults attending dental primary care (IQuaD)
