This work stream explores and compares the relative costs, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of specific LTC services for service users and carers. The aim is to establish the causal effects of specific services on service users’ and carers’ QOL. We will use two methods to address this challenge. The first uses the ‘expected’ method of ASCOT to establish a counterfactual; the second estimates a production function to determine the incremental contribution that services make to QOL.
You can read more about the methods we plan to use for this analysis in recent publications by members of the EXCELC team. These are available from our outputs page.
