ABSTRACT:
A reliable and valid multidimensional instrument for measuring quality of life in cancer patients has
been developed. Furthermore, a model has been offered that describes how quality of life works as
an outcome variable. Using this model, predictions were made of how nursing interventions may
directly or indirectly impact on quality of life. Initial testing of the model using data from 135
colostomy patients showed how satisfaction with nursing care and personal control act as cognitive
mediators of self-worth, which then impacts on dimensions of quality of life.
