Although literature devoted to the measurement of quality of life has proliferated during the past three decades, formal assessment of quality of life with aphasia is new (Worrall & Holland, 2003). Clinicians are faced with the challenge of selecting appropriate measurement tools to facilitate relevant treatment planning and meaningful interpretation of treatment outcomes. Tasks prerequisite to measuring an individual’s quality of life include choosing a definition of quality of life, choosing a general approach to assessment, and choosing a specific instrument to be administered. This paper provides a list of articles garnered from the broad discipline of Quality of Life Research with the hope of assisting speech-language pathologists to incorporate quality of life in assessment, treatment planning, and interpretation of treatment outcomes.
