Abstract

Medical, vocational and psychological indicators of rehabilitation status were examined for 137 patients undergoing chronic dialysis therapy. Patients were evaluated by means of a semi-structured interview, self-ratings of satisfaction and depression and assessments of physical strengths and and cognitive-motor skills. Patients aged 25 to 34 years old were found to have the best overall adjustment to chronic dialysis therapy. The data indicate a need for improved vocational counseling for patients under age 25 and for increased concern with sources of depression among patients 55 and older.
