A maior parte das vezes, como pais, não nos preocupamos em ensinar aos nossos filhos regras de segurança no que diz respeito a cães até surgir uma situação de perigo.

The text provides an analysis of statistical approaches to quality of life, including social indicators, the Quality Adjusted Life Year (QALY), and the medical outcomes literature. The author proposes an alternative, qualitative approach to organising care, which respects the patients' choice and individuality and presents the findings of new research into the quality of life of older people in hospital wards.
Combining original research and a critical analysis of existing models, Nursing Perspectives on Quality of Life is suitable for students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
