Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The quality of life concept was first used in the health literatures after the World War II. Today this concept has become important to address in evaluating the outcome of the quality of health services provided by health professionals in line with the growing awareness that the welfare of patients becomes an important consideration when they choose medical therapy and to maintain life. Quality of life becomes meaningful to the community considerations, particularly to the health services. However, the quality of life concept currently has no consensus about the appropriate specific definition and measuring tool of quality of life. The absence of consensus leads the quality of life concepts remains ambiguous. Simultaneous analysis of the concept is expected to produce a consensus definition and measurement attribute specific and precise in formulating an operational concept of quality of life through the further development of the various indicators that have been widely used in measuring the quality of life of an individual.
