Quality of lifeQuality of life scales are questionnaires that attempt to evaluate the impact of chronic diseases on patients' daily life, psychological state, and social life (professional, hobbies, etc.). The general aim is to find out what really affects individual well-being and social life, and thus affects the patients themselves, and not just the clinical and biological symptoms that doctors are commonly interested in. Impact on quality of life is often parallel with the condition's severity, but this is not always the case. In fact, some conditions which may appear benign can have a serious impact on patients' personal and social life. It is also important to ensure that treatment improves the patient's quality of life.
