Relations between Health-Related Quality of Life and Well-Being: The Gerontologist's New Clothes?
Spiro, Avron, III; Bosse, Raymond
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v50 n4 p297-318 2000
Uses data from the Veterans Administration Normative Aging Study to examine relations among scales assessing health-related quality of life (HQL) and well being (WB). Correlations between HQL and WB scales were moderate. Results suggest that HQL is distinct from the older construct of well being. Gerontologists should readily adopt health-related quality of life, which maintains continuity with well being. (Author/JDM)
