Welcome to the EuroVaQ website
EuroVaQ was a European Commission research project involving organisations from 10 European countries.
The aim of the project was to develop robust methods to determine the monetary value of a quality adjusted life year (QALY) across a number of European Member States.
The EuroVaQ project ended on 31 August 2010 and the final report is now available to download.
Both questionnaires are available for completion in a choice of languages, including English, Dutch, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Danish, Polish, Arabic and Hungarian.
What are your views on health?
EuroVaQ is currently conducting a pilot study to obtain the general public's views on health. In particular, we are interested in finding out the general principles that members of the public want to be taken into consideration when prioritising health care.
The study involves the use of Q methodology: in this case members of the public are being asked if they agree or disagree with 34 individual statements and then to place these statements in order of preference. This type of 'Q sort' is often carried out face to face, with a set of cards and a grid, either on a one-to-one basis or in a group. For the purposes of this study, we have also asked people to complete the 'Q sort' electronically online.
If you would like to participate in the study, instructions are included here.
