General information
Purpose The Assessment of Quality of Life 6D for adolescents is an adaptation of the AQoL-6D. The AQoL-6D was designed to increase sensitivity to health, state variations close to normal health, and to extend the coverage of AQoL. The AQoL instruments were designed because of the perceived limitations in the other instruments.
