How do I refer to the EQ-5D-3L instruments in publications?

When publishing results obtained with the EQ-5D-3L, the following key references can be used:

  • The EuroQol Group (1990). EuroQol-a new facility for the measurement of health-related quality of life. Health Policy 16(3):199-208.
  • Brooks R (1996). EuroQol: the current state of play. Health Policy 37(1):53-72.
  • Rabin, R., & de Charro, F (2001). EQ-5D: a measure of health status from the EuroQol Group. Annals of Medicine 33(5):337-343.

If you used a value set in your study you can also include a reference to the publication describing that value set.
