CONTENTE, Suellen Reis; CAVALCANTE, Lília Iêda Chaves; SILVA, Simone Souza da Costa  and  HEUMANN, Sabine. Routine and life quality of patients from a renal replacement therapy service. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.2, pp. 81-93. ISSN 1677-2970.

Aiming to describe the routine and life quality of users of a renal replacement therapy service in Belém-PA, we have applied the Routines Inventory and the Quality of Brazilian Life Questionnaire (SF-36) in 20 patients, divided into two groups according to the treatment time (more or less than five years). The results indicate that participants have low scores in areas relating to the quality of life (below 76). As for the routine, there are few activities during the day, usually in the company of spouses and children, or alone. The results contribute to the understanding of the impact of disease and treatment in the routine and quality of life of this population.

Keywords : chronic renal failure; renal dialysis; quality of life.
