Defining quality of life indicators for measuring perpetrator intervention effectiveness
This study found that women experienced a broad range of fears which impacted on their quality of life. Women’s top priorities for quality of life were autonomy, informal relationships and emotional health. This study developed a proposed set of additional items for assessing quality of life in the context of intimate partner violence, to be tested and validated in the World Health Organisation’s Quality of Life instrument (short version) (WHOQOL-BREF).
