Licence and permissions

In the spirit of open-access, the LMUP is free to use (there is no licence agreement and no registration or permission is required) but we ask that you cite the main paper of the development and evaluation study (Barrett et al. 2004) and any other appropriate methodological LMUP papers (e.g. evaluations of the LMUP in whatever appropriate context).

Ensuring the LMUP is valid

For anyone who is new to the use of psychometrically-evaluated measures, there is one very important rule that must be followed: THE LMUP MUST BE USED EXACTLY AS IT IS PRESENTED HERE. Any changes to the wording of questions or any substantial changes to layout mean that the measure is invalid and/or would need to be re-validated before use. (For anyone new to the use of psychometric measures, the US FDA's guidance on patient reported outcome measures is a useful guide to the 'dos and don'ts' of measure use. See useful links). If you need any help or advice on your use of the LMUP please email Geraldine Barrett.
