Techniques for assessing the quality of life with a particular emphasis on physical exercise

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Measuring population health is important to evaluate the impact of interventions, to monitor the change in health status, and to predict the need for health care. Interest in measuring qualitative aspects of life that are most closely related to health, health care, and health policy has increased in recent years, and several questionnaires evaluating patients' subjective health status are now available. Examples in the literature of the use of these tools, now grouped into the umbrella term of Patients-Reported-Outcome (PRO), suggest that they may have an important role either in clinical studies or in the evaluation of samples from the general population [1,2].
