Resumen

DANIEL, Fernanda; ANTUNES, Rosa Sara; FERNANDES, Raquel  y  FERREIRA, Pedro Lopes. Health-Related Quality of Life of Elderly under a Gender Perspective. Port J Public Health [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.2, pp.59-65. ISSN 2504-3137.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1159/000490929.

The objective of this study was to assess health-related quality of life of elderly people under a gender perspective. We surveyed 300 elderlies with an average of 74.0 ± 8.5 years. To assess the health-related quality of life we used the Portuguese version of the EQ-5D-3L measuring instrument. Women always present worse results in terms of quality of life and the associations are statistically significant in the areas of self-care, usual activities, pain/ discomfort, and anxiety/depression. The differences in health-related quality of life are statistically significant for both genders, as well as for age.
