Evaluating the Clinimetric Properties to Determine Quality of Life

The EQ-5D is a standardized instrument that measures health-related quality of life and explores the cost-effectiveness of treatments. Malwai is a low-resource country that would benefit from the assessment of quality of life among individuals living with chronic conditions. In this study, researchers needed to evaluate the clinimetric properties of the Chichewa EQ-5D-3L. in conclution the Chichewa EQ-5D-3L was found to demonstrate adequate validity, internal consistency, floor/ ceiling effects, and reliability.
