Author information

  • Department of Psychiatry, Stanford University Medical Center, California, USA.


Available data suggest that OCD has a substantial adverse effect on the HRQL of sufferers and their families. Although no consensus exists as to how to conceptualize or measure HRQL, studies using various concepts and measures will create a greater appreciation of the suffering and impairment entailed in this illness and a greater understanding of the costs, benefits, and limitations of treatment.
