Research Study: Quality of Life of Persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD)

Data on Quality of Life (QoL) can be useful when developing person-centered models of care to improve the health and wellbeing of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This research study measured the QoL of 59 people with severe IDD living in a long-term care facility
in Winnipeg, prior to their transition into community homes.
