What this instrument is for:
The tool can be administered to dialysis patients every six months to evaluate their self-report of quality of life and to identify patients who are at risk for stopping dialysis because of a poor rating. The questionnaire also identifies areas in pain and symptom management and psychosocial and spiritual support in which interventions could be used to improve patients' quality of life.
