DETERMINATION OF THE RELATION BETWEEN DIALYSIS PATIENTS’ QUALITY OF LIFE AND PERCEIVED SOCIAL SUPPORT
Aim: Chronic renal failure is an important life threatening disease that causes physical, mental, and psychosocial problems. This study was conducted for the purpose of the determination of the relation between dialysis patients’ quality of life and perceived social support.
Material and Method: Research has been conducted as relational descriptive. This study was conducted on 96 patients receiving hemodialysis treatment at the Hemodialysis Unit associated with Adıyaman University Training and research Hospital. For data collection, patient introductory survey form, SF-36 quality of life scale, and multidimensional perceived social support scale were used.
Results: 51% of the patients were women, 72.9% were married, 44.8% were illiterate, 40.6% were housewives, 72.9% were unemployed, 55.2% had less income than expense, 52.1% were dialysis patients between 1-5 years. Between social support and quality of life have been found a positive significant relation.
Conclusion: It has been determined that most of the dialysis patients who were taken within the scope of research are female and married, illiterate, have a low level of income, and have been dialysis patients for 1-5 years. According to the results of our research, quality of life of dialysis patients has been found to be low and social support has been found to be of medium level. In order for the patients to be able to cope with problems and for their quality of life to be increased, we can suggest increasing the level of social support.
