Resumen

URZUA, Alfonso; PAVLOV, Ruth; CORTES, Roberto  y  PINO, Vanessa. Psychosocial Factors Linked to Health Related Quality of Life in Hemodialysis Patients. Ter Psicol [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.1, pp.135-140. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082011000100014.

Objective: To analyze the relationship between the variables age, time in treatment, gender, perceived family support, mental health, perceived health status and quality of life (QoL). Method: We studied 128 patients in Public Hospital and a private dialysis center, both in the city of Antofagasta. We used the questionnaire for kidney disease 36 ™ KDQOL-36 ™, the Apgar Family and GHQ-28. We evaluated the relationship between each dimension of the QoL and the factors mentioned. Outcomes: No relationship was found between the QoL and time living with the disease, gender and age. The several dimensions of mental health is assessed to have a greater correlation with the dimensions of quality of life. Conclusions: Mental health is a modulator of the QoL, while others such as gender, length of dialysis and the age of the participants were not factors relevant to this assessment.

Palabras clave : Chronic renal failure; hemodialysis; health related quality of life; KDQOL-36 ™.
