Abstract

Health-related quality of life is considered an important outcome indicator in medical care, yet few studies have been conducted on Taiwanese children's health-related quality of life due to the lack of a measurement tool and no clear agreement on a concept definition. The authors present a review of previous work done in this area with the intended goal of helping Taiwanese health professionals gain insights into the concept of children's quality of life and to incorporate their new knowledge into their care plans. It is also hoped that the information will help researchers in their efforts to study quality of life among children as an indicator for assessing pediatric patient outcomes.
