Can I still use the already received device-dependent EQ-5D versions in ongoing studies?
Yes, in ongoing studies the device-dependent versions can continue to be used. These will become “legacy” versions, which will not be updated in the future and will gradually be phased out.
If new languages are added to an ongoing study, these will be provided in the new digital format, as these are the most up-to-date versions. If for ongoing studies you would also like to receive the device-dependent language versions for consistency reasons, please inform your EuroQol contact person. However, please note that the use of these legacy device-dependent versions will be at your own risk, as legacy versions will no longer be maintained or updated.
