Short Form-6D
Pages 8

The SF-6D was designed in order to allow a single utility score to be calculated from the SF-36. It uses 6 of the domains from the original SF-36. One of the main reasons for developing the SF-6D was to increase the potential for economic evaluations (SF-36 is used widely in a large number of studies), while retaining the SF-36’s descriptive richness and sensitivity to change.
