Abstract: Chronic kidney disease is an important event in the life of people that appears silently and progressively. This disease affects people's quality of life, causing important functional limitations to people who suffer from it. This situation generates psychosocial needs that require social assistance. The research presented below aims to determine the intervention of the Social Health Worker in relation to the biopsychosocial changes experienced by patients with chronic kidney disease who are undergoing dialysis treatment three times per week with a duration of four hours at the Nephros Diaverum dialysis centre in the Montbau neighbourhood of Barcelona. This research has adopted a quantitative methodological approach to analyse the biopsychosocial information registered by the Social Health Worker at the dialysis clinic regarding the patients attended and the social intervention carried out during the last three years. The results obtained confirm that people with chronic kidney disease on dialysis treatment are fragile and social vulnerability arises due to their health condition. Activities of daily living are limited due to the physical and psychological consequences of the treatment, requiring support and social help.
