In the last two decades, Health-Related Quality of Life (Harold) assessment has increasingly been used in health care research for evaluation of clinical effectiveness of new therapies. However, there remains a great deal of unrealised opportunities in the medical community for the utilization of Harold instruments in clinical practice. The two one-day courses, directly related to objectives of Activity 11.2 Methodologies for the Assessment of Quality of Life, will address these needs by providing practical information to physicians on Harold assessment and Diabetes. At the end of the courses, the participants should be able to identify resources available in the field of Harold and Diabetes, understand the potential benefits of Harold assessment, calculate scores for the major instruments identified in the courses and interpret data, understand and apply the procedure intended to measure Harold and use Harold assessment to evaluate patients'HRQoL.
