The essential reference to regulate quality health care
Interest in measuring quality of life and broader health status has risen sharply over the past few years, and the production of measurement scales has almost become an industry. For this reason, there is a need to keep Measuring Health up-to-date on pertinent developments and references.
This thoroughly revised and updated edition offers a comprehensive guide to measures of health and is an essential reference resource for all health professionals and students. The unique strength of the book lies in author Ann Bowling's ability to provide an accessible commentary and guidance on a range of commonly, and not so commonly, used scales. Each chapter is self-contained, and you can dip into and out of the book or read it in full. Current users of the book praise its user-friendly format and length, which are continued in the third edition.
