Abstract: 

Clinicians often make a personal assessment of how much quality of life (QoL) improves after treating a patient. Objective evaluation of QoL, therefore, can help clinicians make educated decisions on managing their patients. The popularity of measuring QoL using standard instruments is sharply increasing. One important reason for such a trend is that some medical interventions produce little, if any, benefit for the treated patient. In some cases, treatment may even diminish QoL.
[1] The principal goal of any medical intervention is to assist patients who have sustained a disease state or disability. The disability caused by illness or injury is deemed multi?dimensional and is directly related to how the patient interacts with his/her physical, social, and attitudinal environment.
[2] Hence, validated information on objective changes in QoL after any treatment serves as an accurate and reliable method to assess the harm and benefit of any medical intervention. The core elements of a QoL assessment encompass physical, functional, psychological/emotional, and social/occupational attributes of a patient.
[1] Changes on QoL scales are biologically unfamiliar to clinicians. Hence, it is crucial that researchers make the results on any QoL scale interpretable to clinicians by relating them to objective measures that are clearly described…
