In addition, comparing responses between dyad members will determine the aspects of HRQL upon which children and parents agree, and those on which they do not.
Many valid, reliable, and accessible disease-specific measurements of HRQL are found throughout the literature for assessment of outcomes among individuals with cardio-vascular and pulmonary disease.

Currently, the HRQL is defined as the "subjective perception, influenced by the current state of health, of the capacity to perform activities deemed important for the individual" (3) and authors, like Ramirez-Velez et al (4), propose that monitoring of HRQL in different populations will permit population identification of altered physical and/or mental health as an input to guide policies or interventions to improve their collective health.
Outcomes of clinical response, remission and HRQL were assessed for up to 152 weeks of treatment in the efficacy population.
