Appraising treatments which may extend life, at the end of life
End of life treatments: summary response to consultation
In November 2008 proposals for an addendum to the 'Guide to Methods of Technology Appraisal' were released for a five week public consultation. The proposal set out supplementary advice to the Appraisal Committees to be taken into account when appraising treatments which may be life-extending for patients with short life expectancy, and which are licensed for indications affecting small numbers of patients with incurable illnesses.
This response document highlights the key themes from public consultation on the draft proposal and describes the subsequent changes to the document.
