Abstract

45 patients on hemodialysis were administered both the Medical Outcomes Study SF-36 and the Beck Depression Inventory. The Mental Health Inventory subscale scores of the SF-36 were regressed stepwise on the Role Emotional subscale scores of the SF-36 and the Beck inventory. 46% of the variance in the MHI-5 scores was accounted for by age category and the other two measures of emotional status. Age category was not significant. Discussion includes the potential utility of the combination of inventories in assessing mental health among patients on hemodialysis.
