Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
At present, it can be considered that the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is a useful tool for measuring the impact that a disease has on the physical and mental aspects of an individual and to evaluate the efficacy/effectiveness of a treatment or health intervention. The trends of incidence in chronic diseases, the aging of the population, and the improvement of the treatments mean that the HRQoL has important repercussions on public health.
The aim is to create a Special Issue of the journal IJERPH in 2020, covering both general and specific aspects of quality of life assessment.
The issue is open to all researchers or research groups that analyze HRQoL, including papers related to methodological aspects of validation of general or specific HRQoL questionnaires, systematic reviews or original articles that evaluate this problem both in the general population and in a specific disease.
