Methods for Analyzing and Reporting EQ-5D data
This open access book is the first published guide about how to analyse data produced by the EQ-5D, one of the most widely used Patient Reported Outcomes questionnaires world wide. The authors provide practical, clear and comprehensive guidance in five concise chapters. Following an overview of the EQ-5D and its analysis, we describe how the questionnaire data – the EQ-5D profile and EQ VAS – can be analysed in different ways to generate important insights into peoples’ health. We then show how the value sets which accompany the EQ-5D can be applied to summarise patients’ data. The final chapter deals with advanced topics, including the use of Minimally Important Differences, case-mix adjustment, mapping, and more. This book is essential for those new to analyzing EQ-5D data and will be also be valuable for those with more experience. The methods can be applied to any EQ-5D instrument (for example, the three- and five-level and Youth versions) and many of the methods described will be equally relevant to other Patient Reported Outcomes instruments.
Self-Reported Population Health: An International Perspective based on EQ-5D
This book captures up-to-date and expanded information of EQ-5D self-reported health and index values. EQ-5D population norms and cross-country analyses are provided from representative national surveys of 20 countries/regions and additional regional surveys.
The EuroQol Group after 25 years
This book describes the history of the institutional and administrative framework within which the EuroQol Group operated. It also presents how the EQ-5D’s descriptive system was determined, how translation and language issues were handled, and how valuations were provided.
EQ-5D value sets: inventory, comparative review and user guide
This book deals with the value sets for EQ-5D that have been produced as part of the EuroQol Group enterprise. The book contains a comprehensive inventory of all available EQ-5D value sets plus guidance for users.
Measuring Self-Reported Population Health: An International Perspective based on EQ-5D
This book deals with the measurement of self-reported health with EQ-5D. The book contains population reference values for a number of countries/regions plus guidance for users.
EQ-5D concepts and methods: a developmental history
This book presents a series of papers from the early 1990s that illustrate many key aspects of the development of EQ-5D including: the descriptive system, self-rated health, valuation issues, health status scaling, modeling and valuation, semantic issues, reliability, and comparison with other instruments.
The measurement and valuation of health status using EQ-5D: A European perspective
This book reports on the results of the European Union funded EQ-net project which furthered the development of EQ-5D in the key areas of valuation, application and translation. Primary effort concentrated on harmonizing and integrating the results of the various EuroQol Group valuation projects. Most importantly the book includes a set of VAS-based preference weights for all the EQ-5D health states based on cross-European EQ-5D data.
