ISHLT 38th Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions
The resources below were developed by the ISHLT Pulmonary Transplantation Council QOL Workforce for clinicians and investigators alike. These resources aim to provide organized, up-to-date summaries of information focused on HRQL in lung transplantation.
This annotated bibliography of peer-reviewed publications focused on HRQL in lung transplantation is organized by theme including:
I. Determinants of HRQL
II. Psychosocial factors in HRQL
III. Comparisons of HRQL before and after lung transplantation
IV. Long-term longitudinal studies of HRQL in lung transplant recipients
V. The effect of therapies and interventions on HRQL
VI. Instrument validation and methodology
VII. HRQL as a predictor of clinical outcomes
VIII. Reviews and Editorials
This table is an organized list of the HRQL, health status and utility instruments used in studies examining HRQL in lung transplantation. In addition, links to the original manuscript that introduced each instrument and to the instrument webpage (if available) are provided.
