Preface

Growing up in rural South India, I witnessed the lifelong effects of polio in my great-uncle and the effects of disability in my grandfather after he suffered a stroke. There were minimal access to health care of any type and no access to medical rehabilitation.

Objective: Practical quality-of-life (QOL) screening methods are needed to help focus clinical decision-making on what matters to individuals with disabilities. Design: A secondary analysis of a database from a large study of adults aging with impairments focused on four diagnostic groups: cerebral palsy (n = 134), polio (n = 321), rheumatoid arthritis (n = 99), and stroke (n = 82). Approximately 20% of cases were repeated measures of the same individuals 3–5 yrs later. Functional levels, depression, and social interactions were assessed. The single-item, subjective, seven-point Kemp Quality of Life Scale measured QO...
