      • Description
      • Calculation/Equation
      • Quality-Adjusted Life Years (QALYs)
      • measure of burden of a particular disease
      • accounts for morbidity and mortality
      • years of life x utility value
      • utility value is calculated for each particular disease
        • range of 0 (death) to 1 (complete health) per year
        • e.g.,if a patient lives for 2 years with a utility value of 0.25 (a quarter of complete health), the patient will have 0.5 QALYs
      • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs)
      • accounts for years lost secondary to early mortality or years of disability
      • # years lost + # disabled years
        • in a population
        • due to a particular disease
      • Potential years of life lost (PYLL)
      • total years of life that would have been lived if the patient had a normal life expectancy
      • typically use 65 as life expectancy
      • e.g.,65 - age at death from disease
