Measuring Quality of Life


A website that provides information about quality of life (QOL) as well as functional status instruments that have been used in assessing patients with pulmonary disease or critical illness. There is General information about the measurement of QOL, a description of specific instruments used to measure QOL, and references to articles that have used the instruments available.


For anyone interested in discovering what is available for measuring quality of life for patients with pulmonary diseases or for patients who have been discharged from critical care, this site is an excellent place to begin. There is a lot of information here.
