Basic description

  • Developed in 2000
  • The KDQOL-36™ is based on the KDQOL-SF™. It includes the SF-12 as generic core plus the burden of kidney disease, symptoms/problems of kidney disease, and effects of kidney disease scales from the KDQOL-SF™v1.3.
  • The KDQOL-36™can be used in patients who have CKD but have not yet started dialysis: questions about problems with access site (item 28a for hemodialysis) and catheter site (item 28b for peritoneal) can be removed.
