Table 11 Probabilistic results from the Thyme et al. [14] scenario: verbal therapy versus art therapy

From: The clinical and cost effectiveness of group art therapy for people with non-psychotic mental health disorders: a systematic review and cost-effectiveness analysis

   Using the Ara and Brazier (2008) mapping [25] Using the Rowen et al. (2009) mapping [26]
Duration of residual benefit Costing Source Inc costs (£) Inc QALY Cost per QALY (£) (95 % CI) Inc costs (£) Inc QALY Cost per QALY (£) (95 % CI)
52 weeks BAAT −16 0.0675 Dominating (Dominating–183a) −16 0.0757 Dominating (Dominating–99a)
52 weeks Curtis [28] −22 0.0675 Dominating (Dominating–251a) −22 0.0757 Dominating (Dominating–136a)
104 weeks BAAT −16 0.1241 Dominating (Dominating–168a) −16 0.1391 Dominating (Dominating–91a)
104 weeks Curtis [28] −22 0.1241 Dominating (Dominating–230a) −22 0.1391 Dominating (Dominating–125a)
  1. N.B.: Dominated means both more expensive and less efficacious
  2. Inc Incremental
  3. aThese values represent cost per QALY lost and as such these upper bound values indicate art therapy is more cost effective than verbal therapy
