Value of Treatment: 1st Round

The VOT research project first round (2015-2017) (VOT1) included case studies on disorders ranging from schizophrenia to Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, headache, normal pressure hydrocephalus, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, restless legs syndrome and stroke).  

The conclusions released in 2017 (EBC White Policy Paper) highlighted the need for more research, early, if possible prodromal, diagnosis and intervention, integrated seamless care underpinning timely care pathways as a solution to address value-based health care in Europe and access to the best treatments available.
