9780335206414: Measuring Disease: A Review of Disease Specific Quality of Life Measurement Scales

"Anyone seeking to identify potentially useful disease-specific measures for their study will find this a good starting point." Quality of Life Research

Praise for the first edition:

"...text that is remarkably detailed and comprehensive in its coverage of a range of quality of life measures...Bowling's book provides an important step towards the development of measures of quality of life that are both sensitive and rigorous." - Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health

"...a most useful and comprehensive addition to the literature...The book is readable, well referenced and up to date. I recommend any group that wishes to attempt to measure health outcomes to consider adding this book to their resource list." - Australian Health Review

"...this book gives an in-depth and comprehensive insight in health-related quality of life scales...a most valuable guide in helping the reader search for the scale with the best psychometric properties. Furthermore, this book will contribute highly to the improvement of disease-specific measurement of quality of life and to the comparability of measurement results." - Journal of Health Psychology

This is a thoroughly updated and revised edition of Measuring Disease. It supplements the author's previous work Measuring Health (2nd edition). In assessing the outcome of disease and treatments, measurement scales must be relevant to their specific effects, necessitating the use of disease specific questionnaires. There is now considerable interest in measures which are multi-dimensional, and which are more sensitive than generic measures to specific disease and treatment effects. This book reviews disease specific measures of quality of life and, where relevant, popularly used symptom and single dimension scales. It is intended as a source book for researchers, medical and health care practitioners who are involved in the measurement of the outcome of health services.
