Primary use / Purpose:
Quality of life has received much attention in recent years as a method of determining general well-being. Consequently, a wide range of tools now exist measuring quality of life in a variety of ways. However, family quality of life has received not nearly the same level of attention despite its crucial role in shaping our young lives. For this reason, the Family Quality of Life Scale (FQOL) was developed by (Hu, Summers, Turnbull, & Zuna, 2011).
The psychometric details of the Family Quality of Life Scale (FQOL) are discussed in (Hu, Summers, Turnbull, & Zuna, 2011) and also in the scoring key document attached below.
