The Australian National Health and Medical Research Council recently funded a large project to investigate the 'instruments' used for measuring quality of life in the economic evaluation of health services and their relationship to measures of subjective wellbeing employed by psychologists.
Some of the results from the project are summarised in the attached brochure which I am sending to people and organisations with an interest in the quality of life either for economic evaluations or in psychological studies. Our aim is to highlight the problems and challenges which exist with these instruments.
We also wish to encourage people to use the 2.8 million items of data which we are making freely available. Until 2014 there will be some restrictions on their use. From 2014 the full database will be available on the AQoL website.
