Of the remaining patients, three refused to complete a quality of life assessment and a proxy was unavailable to provide this information. These patients are excluded. Of the remaining 97 patients, 25 had documentation of a quality of life assessment during the measurement period. This is the numerator. Quality of patient care = 25/(). Dr. Health‐related quality of life (HRQoL) is a multidimensional concept that includes physical health, psychological state, and social relationships (Schipper et al., ).As a chronic disorder, epilepsy has considerable negative impact on people’s day‐to‐day functioning (Baker, ).Apart from experiencing seizures and their detrimental impact on cognitive function, particularly memory.
Purpose: Studies in adults with epilepsy, mainly in specialized epilepsy clinics, have shown that sleep disturbances were twice as prevalent in people with epilepsy as in healthy controls. Our aim was to determine the prevalence of sleep disturbances in people with epilepsy treated in district hospitals, as well as the impact of it on Quality of Life.

One way to define and monitor the impact of epilepsy and seizures on your patient's life is to ask patients to record their feelings on questionnaires. As such, assessments of quality of life (QOL) and seizure severity can be used to document your patient's.
The quality of life in epilepsy (QOLIE) was used for collecting data on health-related QOL with the permission of the Research and Development (RAND) Corporation. It consists of seven subscales, which are seizure worry, emotional well-being, energy/fatigue, cognitive functioning, medication effects, social functioning, overall QOL, and one Cited by: 6.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the QoL of epileptic patients in comparison to healthy persons. The increasing emphasis on the importance of non-clinical outcomes in the assessment of new treatments and management strategies for chronic conditions such as epilepsy has stimulated interest in methodological issues in assessing quality of life.

Historically, epilepsy has been a stigmatizing medical disorder par excellence, and Dell argued that, even in contemporary worlds and times, its stigma remains real and serious, limiting the quality of life of those affected by it.
Support for Dell’s observation has been found in research linking the stigma of epilepsy to increased rates of. The QOLIE is a survey of health-related quality of life for adults (18 years or older) with epilepsy.

The impact of epilepsy extends well beyond the direct effects of seizures and includes a number of challenges, which may lead to disability and severely reduced quality of life. People with epilepsy can face diminished social support and family function, cognitive challenges, medical and psychiatric comorbidities, and stigmatization.
Part of our study, the Dutch Quality of Life and Quality of Care Investigation in Epilepsy (DUQQIE), intended to cover several of the components of the quality of life (QoL) concept. Abstract.

"Quality of Life in Epilepsy" has been an extremely useful resource for me in my investigation of life with this seizure disorder. The subtitle of the book, "Beyond seizure counts in assessment and treatment", is descriptive of a particular concern of mine.
