Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
COVID-19, first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, is a major global public health problem with high morbidity and mortality. Many patients have had their physical or mental health impaired as a result of the disease, along with, thus, their quality of life.
The health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is a useful tool for measuring the impact that this disease is having on the physical and mental aspects of individuals and evaluating the efficacy/effectiveness of treatments or health interventions.
The aim is to create a Special Issue of the journal IJERPH in 2021, covering both general and specific aspects of quality-of-life assessment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The issue is open to all researchers or research groups that analyze HRQoL during COVID-19, including papers related to methodological aspects of the 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.
