Child Health Utility-9D update

The Child Health Utility 9D (CHU-9D), developed in HEDS by Katherine Stevens, is a generic utility instrument for use with children aged 7-17 years. The CHU-9D web page has been updated to give detailed information on how how to obtain the instrument and let you know that a Chinese translation is now available for licencing. The translation has undergone a full linguistic validation process and is available for researchers interested in applying this paediatric utility measure in a Chinese speaking population. There are no local (Chinese) preference weights available yet, but these are in development.
