Abstract

Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is the subjective perception of either the effect of a disease or its treatment on one's health and overall quality of life. HRQOL measurements convey important information about the patients, which is accessible through neither traditional clinical nor conventional laboratory assessment. Several valid and reliable questionnaires can assess HRQOL. Patient-centered, preference-based instruments will likely improve the accuracy of HRQOL measurement. Psychosocial factors are strong predictors of HRQOL, and psychosocial interventions are proposed to potentially improve HRQOL in patients with chronic kidney disease.
