We are delighted to announce the start date of the new EQ-5D-5L valuation study for the United Kingdom. The study proposal and statistical analysis plan were approved for funding by EuroQol’s Executive Committee in June and have also now been signed off by the study’s Steering Group. The study team aim to start sample recruitment in October with the goal of undertaking 1,200 interviews in a representative sample of people living in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Data collection will be undertaken using the cTTO component from the latest version of the international standard valuation study protocol (EQ-VT).
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic the launch of the new EQ-5D-5L valuation study for the United Kingdom, which had planned to use face-to-face interviews to collect time trade-off (TTO) data, was delayed. We are pleased to announce that the study protocol has now been adapted and tested to ensure that data can be collected safely and reliably in the light of COVID-19.
Below you find a series of updates on the study and the various teams involved.
