EQ-5D and PROMs

This OHE Research Paper describes a study in which four stated preference methods for anchoring EQ-5D-Y values were compared: visual analogue scale, discrete choice experiment (with a duration attribute), lag-time time trade-off, and the recently developed ‘location-of-dead’ element of the personal utility function (PUF) approach.

As indicated in its recent statement, NICE supports a new valuation study to generate a value set for the EQ-5D-5L. We welcome this announcement.

Chronic diseases affect individuals’ health status and its impact is reflected by the stock of health, which measures the amount of health of a population in a given period of time. In a new study published in Health Economics, Maria Errea and colleagues assess the health-related quality of life of a population using the EQ-5D-5L instrument to, first, estimate the impact of a set of 30 chronic diseases and, second, rank diseases according to their impact on the stock of health for a country.

In collaboration with University of Technology Sydney, we’re leading a study funded by the EuroQol Research Foundation to develop ‘bolt-on’ descriptors for the EQ-5D. The goal is to develop and test new questions that can be used with people who have cognitive impairment or visual impairment.
