Methods: The sample consists of 40 hemodialysis and 40 renal-transplant receivers aged 20 years old and over admitted to the Soodeh Center in Islamshahr district in Tehran, Iran. All subjects were outpatients and completed the Evans & Cope QOL questionnaire.
Results: The mean score of QOL was 49.1 (SD=14) in hemodialysis and 41.9 (SD=lS.5) in renal transplant receivers indicating a significant difference between two groups {P<0.05).
