摘要

Quality of life is a complex and multidimensional concept. Understanding a patient's quality of life can assist healthcare providers to assess risk factors associated with hospitalization and mortality, and, potentially, delay disease progression. As chronic kidney disease (CKD) symptoms vary during different stages of the disease, instruments must be properly adjusted to measure quality of life accurately. This article explores comprehensively the development and appropriateness of relevant instruments, and recommends specific instruments for use at specific CKD stages.
