A qualitative meta-synthesis was performed based on the research conducted by the group Technological health care models and health promotion using the WHOQOL-bref and its interface with health promotion. The synyhesis of the five studies revealed that there are conceptual relationships between the WHOQOL-bref domains and health promotion, which legitimizes it as a tool for health promotion.
