(The result is calculated as a percentage of social, physical and psychological dimensions in which the higher the result obtained, the greater the disability or symptom/poorer the HRQOL).
- Health Questionnaire EQ-5D-5L by EuroQol Group, generic and standardized instrument used to describe and value the HRQOL of a group or population and validated in Spain by Badia X. et al. in 1999 [49]. Numeric value between 3 and 45, in which the higher the score, the poorer the HRQOL.
