The WHO Field Centre for the Study of Quality of Life is an international research centre based at the University of Bath.
What does quality of life mean to you?
Is there universal agreement about its meaning, or is it culturally defined?
Can you measure it, and if so, what is the best way to do this?
Is it a single idea or concept, and if not, do people agree about which dimensions of quality of life are important?
These and many other questions have become the basis for over a decade of research on the WHOQOL project carried
out in the WHO Centre for the Study of Quality of Life at University of Bath, through a collaboration set up by the World Health Organisation,
Geneva (Division of Mental Health).
I am sorry that you are unable to find out about your quality of life by completing the WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire on-line. The website is currently being moved to the University of Manchester, and we expect to resume this service as soon as possible.
The UK WHOQOL questionnaires and supporting materials are no longer available to researchers and practitioners from this website.
