HEQ (Health Economics Questionnaire)

Simon Judit; Susanne Mayer

The original Health Economics Questionnaire (HEQ) is a comprehensive patient self-completed health economics questionnaire measuring health and social care resource use, medication, absenteeism from work and presenteeism, other productivity impacts as well as socio-demographic background information. It was developed in 2016 based on several years of international experience with within-trial (mental health) economic evaluations and originally implemented in the multi-country European PreDicT study.

Further language versions are also available in Dutch, French, German and Spanish.
