Abstract: The concept of quality of life (QOL) broadly encompasses how individuals measure the 'goodness' of multiple aspects of their life. These evaluations include one's emotional reactions to life occurrences, disposition, sense of life fulfillment and satisfaction, and satisfaction with work and personal relationships. Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is a fashionable concept in the field of outcome measurement and has been enthusiastically adopted by clinicians, researchers, economists and managers. The concept of HRQOL and its determinants have evolved since the 1980s to encompass those aspects of overall QOL that can be clearly shown to affect health, either physical or mental. On the individual level, this includes physical and mental health perceptions and their correlates, including health risks and conditions, functional status, social support, and socioeconomic status. In recent years, there has been an increasing interest from health professionals in investigating HRQOL in chronic disease. One of the experts in the field of QOL is Prof. Konstadina Griva who kindly accepted to answer our questions about the relation between health psychology and QOL as well as the role of psychology in the contemporary world.
