    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Recovery after intensive care is prolonged; health-related quality of life takes time to return to pre-ICU levels, and is worse than general population norms. Individual quality of life seems less related to physical health and more to intrinsic well-being with family and social activities rated more highly than health. Nonetheless both approaches are related and assessing health- related and individual quality of life after intensive care can improve our understanding of recovery from and inform care after intensive care
