Quality of Life
The World Health Organization has, over the last ten years been working on the assessment of quality of life in health care settings. Some focused work in the last five years has resulted in the development of an instrument/questionnaire — the WHOQOL-100 — to assess Quality of Life (QOL)1,2. This instrument has been developed simultaneously in 14 countries around the world (e.g. France, India, Panama, Thailand, United States, Zimbabwe), representing very different cultural traditions.
