Eliciting and modelling the 5-level German EuroQol questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L)
Measurement of quality of life is a very important issue in health economics research, as such patient reported outcomes can be used for benefit assessment in cost-effectiveness and cost-utility studies. However, for Germany there is a lack of a preference value set for health-related quality of life instruments. This study aims at deriving a preference valuation set for EQ-5D-5L health states from the German general public based on two different valuation techniques time-trade-off (TTO) and discrete choice experiment (DCE).
