Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is an important outcome to measure health benefits in healthcare services research and evaluation. There is well developed methodology and guidance for measuring and valuing health benefits in adult populations for economic evaluation. However, available instruments and relevant empirical evidence for the paediatric population is limited, especially for young children under 5 years old.

This research aims to validate and value a child-specific preference-based measure (Child Health Utility 9 Dimensions, CHU9D) for children aged 2-4 years and apply HRQOL in health researchers among Australian children. These studies will mainly focus on the health outcomes of economic evaluation.
