Quality of Life / Wellness

Outcome studies measuring health related quality of life (HRQL) are becoming increasingly sought as measures as to the value of a health intervention. In outcomes studies the overall wellness or well-being of a person is explored to ask the question, "Is this intervention truly benefiting the overall health of the patient or are we just treating symptoms or having a minimal effect on this patient's life?" That is very important because doctors can give a patient a drug to lower their high blood pressure, but the result may be impotence. Doctors may give a drug to lower high cholesterol and the result may be suicide. Doctors may give a ability to relate to their environment rather than the diagnosis and treatment of symptoms and diseases.
