Matthew Franklin

Senior Health Economist Research Fellow

Dr Matt Franklin is a member of the YH ARC Health Economics, Evaluation and Equality (HEEE) Theme and Senior Health Economist Research Fellow in the Division of Population Health at the University of Sheffield.
“My research has broadly focussed on estimating the comparative cost-effectiveness of different health and social care interventions using economic evaluation methods of both within study and for modelling-based analyses. I am particularly interested in the conduct of economic evaluations that use real-world data to support trials and within observational studies.
I also have a keen interest in the components of economic evaluation related to outcomes (particularly preference-based outcomes), resource-use and costs. I have explored both the conceptual underpinning of relevant outcomes for economic evaluation (such as the focus on health and utilities, alongside other perspectives such as the capability approach), the estimation of these outcomes (such as appropriately estimating health utility and quality-adjusted life years ([QALYs]) and the psychometric properties of patient-reported outcomes with a focus on construct validity and responsiveness.
I have worked across a range of conditions and population groups, but I have a keen interest in mental health across the lifespan”.

Recovering Quality of Life (ReQoL) Patient Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) Implementation Programme

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are commonly collected in trials and some care settings, but preference-based PROMs required for economic evaluation based on quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) are often missing. We...
