EQ-5D-5L: Smaller steps but a major step change?

Professor John Brazier has written a collaborative editorial alongside Professor Andrew Briggs and Professor Sterling Bryan for Health Economics journal.

Professor Brazier said: "NICE uses a three level version of the EQ-5D to estimate QALYs. The potential adoption of the new five level version by NICE has important implications for resource allocation in the NHS. This editorial looks at the arguments for adopting the new five level version (EQ-5D-5L) over the existing three level version."
