Health technology assessment bodies, including those in Australia and the UK, have noted a lack of evidence on the performance of paediatric HRQoL instruments to guide decision making. Feasibility, acceptability, and construct validity are core aspects of understanding the overall performance of a HRQoL instrument. Additionally, understanding the quality of paediatric HRQoL data collected using various methods is crucial. The paediatric multi-instrument comparison (P-MIC) study is the first of its kind to compare concurrent measurement of common generic and disease-specific paediatric HRQoL instruments. This presentation aims to explore the quality of data collected in the P-MIC study, as well as initial feasibility, acceptability, and psychometric results of the EQ-5D-Y-3L, EQ-5D-Y-5L, TANDI and PedsQL.
Renee Jones is a PhD student with the Health Economics Unit at the University of Melbourne, and her research is focused on the measurement of paediatric health related quality of life (HRQoL) and paediatric patient reported outcome measures (P-PROMs).
