Health status results from an individual's values placed on the interactions among a person's physical state, associated mental perceptions and emotions, resulting behaviors, and environment. Improving health-related quality of life is the goal of all disease treatment. This article reviews the components of health status, summarizes relevant studies in children with rheumatic and related diseases, and considers the role that future studies will play in improving care for children with rheumatic diseases.
