Health related quality of life is one of several end points commonly studied in medical outcomes research.
It refers to how well an individual is functioning in life and to his or her own perceptions of well being.
Although health related quality of life variables concern subjective phenomena, their measurement is rigorously quantitative and based upon the well defined principles of psychometric research methodology.
Health related quality of life data are collected with survey instruments, which may be self-administered or require a trained interviewer.
Some are completed at a medical facility, while others are completed independently at home or by telephone.
To yield useful information, such instruments must undergo extensive pilot testing and be shown to have sound psychometric properties.
