Abstract:
Article discusses approaches to assessing activity-related quality of life (QOL) outcomes in rehabilitation, focusing on individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Activity-related QOL is defined as an approach that assesses the person's activities or functions and their feelings about them. Past research in rehabilitation has primarily focused on evaluation of function or activity. Authors propose that future research should consider not only activity outcomes but also the affective quality of everyday life, and the connections between the two.
