CHU-9D now available in Welsh….

…and is also available in Chinese, Dutch, Spanish and English.  Japanese and Danish versions are about to be finalised and the Swedish translation is underway.

Just in case you don’t know, the CHU9D is a paediatric generic preference based measure of health related quality of life. It consists of a descriptive system and a set of preference weights, giving utility values for each health state described by the descriptive system, allowing the calculation of quality adjusted life years (QALYs) for use in cost utility analysis.  The CHU-9D was developed in HEDS by Katherine Stevens.

For details on how to obtain it, have a look here.
