Resumen

URZUA M, ALFONSO; MENDEZ P, FRANCISCA; ACUNA F, CAROLINA  y  ASTUDILLO C, JOCELYN. Quality of Life and Health in Preschoolers. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2010, vol.81, n.2, pp.129-138. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062010000200005.

Objective: Parents' perception of quality of life (QOL) was correlated to the health status of children between three and five years eleven months of age. Method: TAPQOL questionnaires were utilized to evaluate parents or guardians of 483 children who attenden private, semiprivate and public kindergardens. Average age of the children was 51.7 months, 47% were girls. Results: QOL was found to be disturbed through anxiety and behavior problems. Some differences were found along the dimensions of gender, type of institution, and presence of illness. Conclusions: Our results allow us to focus on those preschoolers whose parents report a worse QOL, to develop intervention plans. Those are children who have suffered a disease, the youngest, or those who attend public preschools. Positive behavioral signs, anxiety and communication are special areas of interest for medical intervention.

Palabras clave : Quality of life; preschoolers; TAPQOL.
