The Compendium places an important resource in your department or library. Because every quality of life study is unique, instruments were chosen to reflect varying user requirements. In this way the user is able to target varying populations and patients suffering from differing conditions. Questionnaires cover a broad spectrum of disorders, with sections devoted specifically to caregivers, children, the elderly, women and economic measures.

Each instrument is supplemented by a detailed Data Sheet of supportive information to facilitate access to what is considered to be the most important data on each instrument. To see a list of Contents, please click on the pdf link below.
