Annual change in the short-form health survey physical component score may not be the most accurate means of monitoring physical function change among older patients on hemodialysis, according to this study.
Despite prior investigations that have shown the short-form health survey-12 physical component score (SF-12 PCS) to be reliable in identifying mortality risk among this patient population, Rasheeda K. Hall, MD, MBA, MHSc, of Duke University Medical Center, and colleagues argued that it remains unknown “whether SF-12 PCS change is a clinically useful means of monitoring functional status change.”
