This poll was created by Brooks  to quantify the QWL among enrolled attendants. It is a self-fruition ques-tionnaire with 42 things isolated into four subscales: (a) work life/home life, (b) work outline, (c) work setting and (d) work world. The work life/home life measurement is characterized as the interface between the work and home existence of the medical attendant. The work outline measurement is the com-position of nursing work and portrays the genuine work that medical attendants perform. The work connection measurement incorporates the practice settings in which attendants work and investigates the work 's effect surroundings on both medical attendant and patient frameworks.
