Abstracts
Knee osteoarthritis can results in physical disability, especially when the person is older. It affects the person´s functional abilities and quality of life. The aim of this paper is to determine if there are statistically significant differences in the self- assessment of health and some aspects of quality of life of older persons with knee OA. The sample included 74 participants aged 65 years and older. WOMAC Questionnaire and SF-36 questionnaire were used for data analysis. The findings show that the highest correlation is between the overall intensity of OA symptoms with pain and inability to achieve a certain life role because of physical pain. The results show that there are statistically significant differences between age and duration of pain, while there is no statistically significant differences between gender and marital status. Knee OA has a great impact on self-evaluation of health status and some aspects of quality of life of older people.
