Stated Preferences

Stated-Preference Methods

Stated-preferences methods can be used by researchers, patients groups, and policy makers to better understand and communicate the priorities and preferences of patients and other stakeholders in medicine.

What are stated-preference methods?

Stated-preference methods are grounded in economics and psychology. They include a range of survey methods, either qualitative or quantitative, that can be used to quantify the perspectives of patients and other stakeholders in medicine.

Our Work

Our research team is working to improve stated-preference methodology and to demonstrate best practices in the application of stated preferences in health outcomes research. Our goal is to illustrate, advance and disseminate methods for incorporating the values of patients and stakeholders in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). This research will advance approaches and methods that will be broadly generalizable to other diseases, and to diverse patient and stakeholder groups.

Stated-Preference Methods

Stated-preference methods can be used to identify what patients and stakeholders value in their health care options and daily lives.
