Mapping database v2.0 up and running

Developed by HERC, the database lists studies mapping patient-reported outcome measures or clinical instruments to the EQ-5D.

It presents details of the sample size, modelling methods and patient population, in addition to the citation details and source instruments that are mapped in each of the 90 studies meeting the inclusion criteria. An article summarising the methods and results of the literature review has been published in Health and Quality of Life Outcomes. The database will be updated regularly as new studies are published.
