Assessing social care-related quality of life – New blog post on Excelc website

June 7, 2019

Eirini Saloniki – CHSS & PSSRU Research Associate has released a new blog post on the recent journal article that emerged from the work undertaken in the EXCELC project on comparing internet and face-to-face surveys as methods for eliciting preferences for social care-related quality of life.

Traditionally, researchers have relied on eliciting preferences through face-to-face interviews. Recently, there has been a shift towards using internet-based methods. Different methods of data collection may be a source of variation in the results. In this study, we compare the preferences for the Adult Social Care Outcomes Toolkit (ASCOT) service user measure elicited using best–worst scaling (BWS) via a face-to-face interview and an online survey.
