Quality of life
Psychometric testing of the multidimensional older people's quality of life (OPQOL) questionnaire and the causal model of QoL under-pinning it.
At the time of the project, there were more people aged in their 70s and 80s, and with increased life expectancy, than ever before.
Increasing social expectations, and concerns about the policy implications of the ageing population, have led to interest in improving older people’s health, independence, activity, social and economic opportunities and participation, thereby their active contribution to society, and, in effect, adding quality to extended years.
