Anna Cybulska

This study aimed at determining the quality of life on a group
of 71 hemodialysis patients in DaVita Clinic Dialysis Station
in Pi�?a. The research instruments were: the 36-Item Short Form
Health Survey, the Adherence to Refills and Medications Scale
and the author’s questionnaire.
Our findings showed that the main total score of adherence
to treatment is 17.8 ±4.1. Data analysis regarding the quality
of life among hemodialysis patients indicated that respondents
had the best quality of life in domains such as: sense of mental
health, bodily pain and mental component summary. On the
other hand, the results were the worst in case of physical functioning,
general health perception and physical role functioning.
Additionally, it has been noted that the patients function
