Development of a preference-based, condition specific patient reported outcome measure for use with venous ulceration (2012)
The SPVU-5D is a new condition-specific preference-based measure of health related quality of life for use in the assessment of the impact of venous ulceration. It has five dimensions encompassing physical, psychological and social aspects. The measure was developed from the bottom-up and incorporates items generated from patients. The measure has been shown to have good practicality and validity. Preference-weights and a scoring algorithm were produced based on valuations from the UK population.
