Abstract

Several invaluable texts describe the construction of measures of health related quality of life (HQoL). However, the development of an HQoL measure requires many assumptions and judgements. Although seemingly quite minor, these assumptions and judgements may have profound consequences for the resulting measure.This chapter is intended as an example that may guide future researchers developing measures. It outlines the decisions made in the development of DHEQ in the following stages:. •Our perspective•Explicitly determining the purpose of the measure•Selection of a model•The value of qualitative data•Selection of domains•Selection of descriptive system / response format and Scaling•Selection of items•Reference period•Panel testing.
