The effect of travel distance on health-related quality of life for patients with nephrolithiasis.

The effect of travel distance on health-related quality of life for patients with nephrolithiasis. Urolithiasis causes a significant impact on health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Patients with kidney stones have high levels of stress and anxiety. Symptom resolution often requires treatment. Travel distance is a barrier to care but little is known about its effects on HRQOL. We hypothesize that increased distance to treatment site is associated with decreased HRQOL. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Canadian Urological Association journal = Journal de l'Association des urologues du Canada Pubmed
