The concept of quality of life has begun to be used increasingly in the field of health assessments or as a measure of well-being. Despite this, there is no single definition or a complete difference from other similar concepts often being misused. This paper presents a theoretical concept and a classification of the different models of definitions, including a proposed model based on cognitive assessment. They also develop major problems confronting research in the area of quality of life.
