Therefore, it is necessary to clarify the concept to assist health care professionals develop effective interventions that improve the quality of life of the caregivers. The four principles of Morse´s framework concept analysis were chosen to evaluate the concept (epistemological, logical, pragmatical and linguistical). The results show that quality of life is an immature, multidisciplinary and subjective concept.
