Abstract: The purpose of this research was to identify, in an elderly population with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing ambulatory hemodialysis, the correlation between a generic index of quality of life (WHOQOL-BREF) and the severity index of the ESRD-SI. The work consisted of a correlational cross-section study conducted at two clinics providing replacement of renal therapy and involved 100 elderly patients suffering from ESRD, who had already been in hemodialytic treatment for at least six months. The WHOQOL-BREF showed a negative correlation with the severity of the ESRD-SI and the technique employed allowed for a distinction to be made between patients with greater and lesser severity of ERSD-SI.
