Context. The accurate measurement of quality of life (QoL) among people with chronic and incurable illnesses is essential for evaluating service delivery, understanding the impact of illness and treatment effects, and testing intervention effectiveness. Palliative care interventions are relatively new in Turkey; therefore, it is important that reliable and valid QoL instruments are available to evaluate palliative care effectiveness in Turkish speakers.
