Mesures de qualité de vie en santé : un processus social de subjectivation ?

Abstract : While first quality of life evaluations have been elaborated from the 1960s inside national plans and tried to measure objectively the sanitary effects of public health policies, since the 1970s new approaches developed that put the stress on subjective elements and individual points of view. From the 1980s, some quality of life evaluations have been used to determine the effects of new therapeutics. The use of such measures inside clinical research, in a context of preoccupation about growing healthcare spending, led to the development of evaluations of patient preferences to determine the effectiveness of healthcare strategies. These economical and clinical orientations accentuated the subjective dimension of these measures. So that, in a few decades, measures of quality of life followed a process that deeply reinforced their subjective dimension. This is this process and the paradoxes it produces that is described in this article.
