Measuring health-related quality of life
Measuring and valuing health-related quality of life when sufficient data is not directly observed.
The preferred use of EQ-5D raises questions around what should be done when EQ-5D data is unavailable, when EQ-5D is inappropriate, or when EQ-5D data is insufficient.
This report provides guidance on the alternative methods for measuring and valuing health-related quality of life in situations where available EQ-5D data from clinical studies are insufficient for the requirements of the economic evaluation.
The report makes recommendations about the circumstances when each method may be used. It also suggests a hierarchy of methods where more than one option is feasible.
