The increased focus on QoL in health research and care is an encouraging one. The conception of health is moving from a model that focused on disease and treatment and is starting to include an assessment of the dynamic relationship between disease, treatment and life. To that end we are seeing a proliferation of HRQoL and CSQoL instruments, which is good. The measurement of HRQoL and CSQoL is still in its infancy, the instruments developed to date are generally adequate, but represent a starting point for the assessment of QoL not an endpoint.
