Opis: Measuring Disease - Ann Bowling, Bowling

This text is intended to supplement the author's previous work, "Measuring Health - A Review of Quality of Life Measurement Scales". In assessing the outcomes of disease and treatments, measurement scales must be relevant to their specific effects. Generic health-related quality of life, or health status, scales will need to be supplemented with, or replaced by, disease-specific items and scales. Some specialities, particularly in psychiatry and cancer, have made considerable progress in the development of disease-specific scales of qualiity life. Others still use batteries of single domain and generic measures in the assessment of quality of life. There is now considerable interest in measures which go beyond one-dimensional assessments and which are also highly sensitive to specific disease and treatment effects. This book reviews specific measures of quality of life and, where appropriate, pertinent symptoms and single-domain scales which are still sometimes used to supplement them. It is intended as a source book for health-services researchers, health-care professionals and others who are involved in the measurement of outcome of therapies in relation to broader health status and quality of life. "...a text that is remarkably detailed and comprehensive in its coverage of a range of quality of life measures...Bowling's bookprovides 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 wishesto attempt to measure health outcomes to consider adding this book totheir resource list." - Australian Health Review "...this book gives an in-depth and comprehensive insight inhealth-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 PsychologyIntroduction - health-related quality of life; cancers; psychiatric conditions and psychological morbidity; respiratory conditions; neurological conditions; rheumatological conditions; cardiovascular diseases; other disease and condition-specific scales; comments on measurement issues and sources of information; selection of useful scale distributors and addresses.
