GIL, Lúcia Maria Torres dos Santos  y  FERNANDES, Isabel Maria Ribeiro. Quality of life of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2019, vol.serIV, n.23, pp.89-98. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV19048.

Background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) usually affects young adults and has a chronic, relapsing-remitting course, with an impact on patients' quality of life, namely on their health, education, profession, and social and family life. Objectives: To assess the levels of quality of life of patients with IBD and identify the quality of life-related factors. Methodology: A descriptive-correlational, cross-sectional study was conducted with a quantitative approach. The consecutive and convenience sample was composed of 38 participants. An instrument that consisted of sociodemographic variables, clinical variables, and behavioral habits, as well as the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire - Revised (IBDQ-R) was applied. Results: A statistically significant association was found between quality of life, in the Social function dimension, and education level, hospital admissions, and smoking habits. Conclusion: Patients with IBD perceived their quality of life as reasonable (45.80%), with higher scores in the Systemic symptoms dimension (49.50%) and lower scores in the Social function dimension (36.50%).
