This study approaches the question of the evolution of the quality of life (QOL) measures in older patient populations. On base of the report of the weak number of instruments specifically adapted to this population and of the absence of instruments taking into account both the expectations and the priorities of the individuals, we wished to make the adaptation of a tool for adult, the Quality of life Systematic Inventory (QLSI©). In this prospect, the main aim of this preliminary research was to test the evaluative approach of the QLSI© within a population of old people and to obtain useful information for the construction of a version of the QLSI© for old people. 135 voluntary subjects, from 65 to 85 years old, living at home and having a good health participated in the study. The questionnaire revealed a good QOL which could be explained by the combination of diverse factors such as a good current situation, a lesser importance given to the diverse life domains and the relatively weak goals. The results demonstrated the relevance of the QLSI© but also showed the necessity of certain modifications to make this questionnaire more specific to the old person. [less ▲]
