Cognitive function and quality of life in end-stage renal failure.
Fox E., McDowall J., Neale TJ., Morrison RB., Hatfield PJ.
The Sickness Impact Profile (SIP) and the Wechsler Memory Scale--Revised (WMS-R) were administered to a small sample of end-stage renal failure patients. The memory test successfully discriminated between patients who were rated by their nurses to be well adjusted or poorly adjusted to dialysis treatment. It is concluded that this instrument may be useful in investigating cognitive function in this patient population.
