The 15D is a generic, 15-dimensional, standardised, self-administered measure of HRQOL, that can be used both as a profile and as a single index score measure. [...] Key Result The response and completion rates show that the acceptability is comparable to NHP, SF-20 and EuroQol. Reliability in terms of repeatability is high, even higher than for NHP. There is substantial evidence of content and construct validity (cross-sectional and longitudinal) and depression-related criterion validity.Expand
The 15D instrument of health-related quality of life: properties and applications
TLDR
The 15D scores are shown to be highly reliable, sensitive and responsive to change, generalisable at least in Western-type societies, and particularly valid for deriving quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) gained for resource allocation purposes. Expand
The Assessment of Quality of Life (AQoL) instrument: a psychometric measure of Health-Related Quality of Life
TLDR
Preliminary results indicate the AQoL has the prerequisite qualities for a psychometric HRQoL instrument for evaluation; replication with a larger sample is needed to verify these findings. Expand
Do established health-related quality-of-life measures adequately capture the impact of chronic conditions on subjective well-being?
TLDR
Using health utility as a basis for resource allocation is likely to underfund the treatment of psychiatric disorders, in comparison to their effect on the SWB of the population. Expand
A comparison of the Assessment of Quality of Life (AQoL) with four other generic utility instruments
TLDR
It is concluded that at present no single MAU instrument can claim to be the ‘gold standard’, and that researchers should select an instrument sensitive to the health states they are investigating. Expand
The Impact of 29 Chronic Conditions on Health-related Quality of Life: A General Population Survey in Finland Using 15D and EQ-5D
TLDR
Musculoskeletal disorders are associated with largest losses of HRQoL in the Finnish population, followed by psychiatric conditions, which may systematically emphasize different conditions. Expand
Psychometric and factor analytic evaluation of the 15D health-related quality of life instrument: the case of Greece
TLDR
The authors' results confirm the multidimensional structure of the 15D and the existence of three latent factors that cover important aspects of the health-related quality of life domain (physical and emotional functioning). Expand
Reliability, validity and responsiveness of two multiattribute utility measures in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

  • 2004
TLDR
The findings in this study indicate that the different utility measures measure different aspects of health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Expand
Comparing preference-based quality-of-life measures: results from rehabilitation patients with musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, or psychosomatic disorders
TLDR
Results obtained with different preference-based quality-of-life measures in a sample of patients with mild to moderate disease severity are not equivalent and careful selection of instruments for a given study is essential. Expand
Translation, Cultural Adaptation, Initial Reliability, and Validation of Turkish 15D’s Version
TLDR
The Turkish version of the Finnish 15D standardized measure of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) instrument for use in Turkey was found to be a reliable and valid instrument and its psychometric properties were assessed. Expand
Validation of EQ-5D and 15D in the assessment of health-related quality of life in chronic pain.
TLDR
In patients with chronic pain, both instruments are valid, but 15D appears somewhat more sensitive than EQ-5D, and differences in the pain-related variables between the EQ- 5D and the 15D are identified. Expand

TLDR
An approach to measuring health with respect to a set of 12 dimensions representing perceived health, physiological and social functioning is suggested, which is disease-independent, quite sensitive and valid in the sense that it reflects the concept of health underlying Finnish health policy, but is likely to be of equal relevance in other societies.
