Do you have something to share about health related quality of life and patient-centered outcomes? We want to hear from you!

QualityTALK is not a journal, and so we do not publish papers. Instead, send us perspectives written in layman’s terms, so as to assist with a wider public understanding and to appeal to potential stakeholders who are not researchers. View ISOQOL’s tips for writing in layman’s terms here.

The ISOQOL Communications Committee provides input for incoming newsletter editorials regarding the relevancy, quality, and appropriateness of scientific newsletter content.
