TELES ZATTA, L.; VISCONDE BRASIL, V.; MENDES FERREIRA, A.C.  and  ALVES BARBOSA, M.. Producción científica de enfermería sobre instrumentos genéricos que evaluan calidad de vida en Brasil entre 1997 y 2007: estudio bibliográfico. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.21. ISSN 1695-6141.

Objective is to analyze scientific production published by nurses that used generic instruments of evaluation of quality of life, in Brazilian journals indexed in the Biblioteca Virtual de Saúde (BVS), among 1997 and 2007. It is a bibliographic research. The research was realized using the descriptors quality of life and nursing, available in the DECS (Descritores em Ciências da Saúde). They were selected articles that in the methodological trial used quality of life's generic instruments. Most of studies about this theme were published in Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem. The most used instrument was WHOQOL-Bref that is a short instrument and that demands less time to its application. It is observed a publication increase using these instruments since 1997. Populations are varied, meaning that these instruments are generics. Results show that researchers are focused in quality of life's evaluation, and it shows the worry in knowing life aspects that are more envolved in different populations, and in this form act to contribute for better patients' quality of life.
