Lesson 8: NON-CHRONIC DISEASES AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Lesson 8: NON-CHRONIC DISEASES AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Early versions of healthcare-related quality of life measures referred to simple assessments of physical abilities by an external rater (for example, the patient is able to get up, eat and drink, and take care of personal hygiene without any help from others) or even to a single measurement (for example, the angle to which a limb could be flexed). The current concept of health-related quality of life acknowledges that subjects put their actual situation in relation to their personal expectation. The latter can vary over time, and react to external influences such as length and severity of illness, family support, etc.
