Los instrumentos para evaluar la calidad de vida en paciente con ERCA se pueden clasificar como genericos y especificos dependiendo a la poblacion a la cual este dirigido, los genericos son instrumentos que se pueden utilizar en diferentes pacientes y su diseno pretende obtener un aspecto de calidad de vida que pueda aplicarse en distintos contextos, como es el caso de la escala SF-36, SF-12, WHOQOL BREF; los especificos pueden serlo para una enfermedad en concreto, o por grupo etario con diferentes alteraciones (8), estas ultimas son las caracteristicas de las escalas KDQOL 36 y WHOQOL OLD (29,30).

The KDQOL, a well validity instrument for assessing the quality of life (QOL) in people with ESKD (Joshi, Mooppil & Lim, 2010; Perlman et al, 2005; Unruh, Weisbord & Kimmel, 2005), consists of 36 items divided into 19 dimensions.

Another study of patients on 3 versus 6 days/week home HD found significant improvements in the effects and burdens of kidney disease domains of the Kidney Disease and Quality of Life (KDQOL) questionnaire in the 6-days/week home HD group, but no significant difference in overall QOL.

The Kidney Disease Quality of Life (KDQOL)-36 is a questionnaire offered to all patients on dialysis to measure the effects of chronic illness to understand more clearly how renal failure interferes with daily living (Hays, Kallich, Mapes, Coons, & Carter, 1994).
