Abstract

It is shown that organization of dispensary follow-up of patients with glomerulonephritis fails to ensure completeness of records-taking and control of the disease course in a timely fashion. The following items were found to influence negatively the quality of specialized medical aid: too late applying of patients for medical advice, non-adherence to the physician's prescriptions and self-curing, which fact is not infrequently related to the patients' inadequate material gains and lack of care in respect of their own health. This warrants heightening of medical-and-educational activities. Risk groups to be targeted for special care include women (in spite of greater disability rates among male subjects), persons aged less than 20 and those beyond 40 years old, those persons that have not completed high education, and those residing in rural areas.
