  5. 5. Studies on Quality of Life : A Methodological Perspective on the Definition and Measurement of the Good Life in Patients with Psychiatric Illness

    Author : Madis Kajandi; Frits-Axel Wiesel; Ulf Malm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Psychiatry; quality of life; measurement; definition; psychiatry; validity; reliability; Psykiatri; Psychiatry; Psykiatri; psykiatri; Psychiatry;

    Abstract : Background: In social sciences the quality of life (QOL) concept is often connected with efforts to evaluate welfare and well being. In medicine QOL is frequently used as a complement to evaluations of cure. In psychiatry QOL is of special importance because many patients have to endure long periods of illness. READ MORE
