Since the early 1970s, the concept of quality of life has been the subject of increasing interest in the medical field, although no scientific consensus has emerged on how to define and measure it. The aim of this narrative review of the literature is to decrypt the notion of quality of life in the medical field, in order to enable clinicians-researchers and clinicians who use quality of life measurement instruments in clinical practice to form an informed and nuanced opinion on the issue. To do so, the paper is divided into three parts. Firstly, a brief overview of the origin of the concept in the medical field is given by exposing the main factors explaining its emergence and its rise in importance. Next, the plurality of definitions of quality of life and its derivatives (e.g. health-related quality of life), as well as its measurement instruments in the medical field, are explored. Finally, some benchmarks for the use of health-related quality of life instruments in clinical practice are presented.

OBJECTIVES: Several concepts on collaboration between patients and healthcare systems have emerged in the literature but there is little consensus on their meanings and differences. In this study, "patient participation" and related concepts were studied by focusing on the dimensions that compose them. This review follows two objectives: (1) to produce a detailed and comprehensive overview of the "patient participation" dimensions; (2) to identify differences and similarities between the related concepts. METHODS: A scoping review was performed to synthesize knowledge into a conceptual framework. An electronic protocol driven search was conducted in two bibliographic databases and a thematic analysis was used to analyse the data. RESULTS: The search process returned 39 articles after exclusion for full data extraction and analysis. Through the thematic analysis, the dimensions, influencing factors and expected outcomes of "patient participation" were determined. Finally, differences between the included concepts were identified. CONCLUSION: This global vision of "patient participation" allows us to go beyond the distinctions between the existing concepts and reveals their common goal to include the patient in the healthcare system. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: This scoping review provides useful information to propose a conceptual model of "patient participation", which could impact clinical practice and medical training programs.

Patient engagement in health care system can be regarded as a lever for the general improvement of people's health, the quality and safety of care. Among the many approaches that co-exist, the model of Patient Partner is relatively recent and declares itself as the most successful to promote this engagement. The authors of this article propose to present briefly the above model and to raise the remaining questions on its operational application. We will then present the research program «Patient Partner Approach to Care¼ (INTERREG Va) that questions the Patient Partner model in an interregional context (Wallonia - Grand Duchy of Luxembourg - Lorraine - Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland).
