ALCEDO RODRIGUEZ, Mª Ángeles et al. The Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ) for persons with disability who are ageing: preliminary study. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2008, vol.17, n.2, pp.153-167. ISSN 2173-4712.

The goal of this paper is the elaboration of an instrument to assess quality of life (QL) of ageing persons with disability. It has been applied to a sample of 2.292 persons older than 45 years, from different regions of Spain. The need of QL assessment instruments for this group of persons with disability who are ageing will allow us to make valid and reliable measures to plan efficient intervention actions and strategies, and has motivated the creation of this Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ). The analysis of the scale psychometric properties shows high internal consistency, Cronbach's alfa of 0,92. Scale dimensionality offers a hexafactorial solution that tests six of the main QL dimensions, such as, physical well being, social inclusion, emotional well being, personal development and self-determination, interpersonal relationship and material well being. These results give evidence of the QLQ suitability to assess the QL, as it is perceived by the sample of our study, the ageing persons with disability.
