EQ-5D BSL study

Loading Video Player....

We are looking for volunteers to take part in a pilot study of the BSL version of the EQ-5D questionnaire. The EQ-5D questionnaire is about health. There are only five questions in the EQ-5D.

Why is this study important?

The EQ-5D questionnaire is commonly used in health care services with hearing people. It would be very helpful if it could also be used with Deaf people but at the moment there is no BSL version. Having good assessment tools in BSL could help to identify people's health difficulties in the earliest stages. This would mean that they could get appropriate support from health care services sooner.

Who can take part?

We are looking for people who are:

  • British Sign Language users
  • Deaf
  • Over 18 years old
  • Currently having (or not having) difficulties relating to their health
