Defining Quality of Life: Whose Life is it, Anyway?
As medical advances have increased survival for those with previously fatal conditions, our focus has shifted from quantity to quality of life. While an objective definition of quality of life has remained elusive, some shared sense of clarity around its meaning is necessary for those who must take account when making or assisting with difficult medical decisions.
Duke University students, post-doctoral fellows, researchers, and faculty are invited to attend. RSVP required: http://duke.is/bUAvxp
