Psychosocial predictors of quality of life among chronic hemodialysis patients.

CONCLUSION: We report higher QoL and relatively better psychosocial profiles among current chronic hemodialysis patients than reported before. Psychosocial disorders specially anxiety can negatively impact QoL. Patients who were not cognitively impaired were more negatively affected in QOL. The findings re-emphasize the importance of the early detection and management of psychosocial disorders to improve QoL in chronic hemodialysis patients. PMID: 32893282 [PubMed - in process]
