The effect of empowerment on quality of life, self efficacy and clinical and lab indicators of patients under hemodialysis treatment
Summary
Patients undergoing haemodialysis experience many changes in their quality of life. Despite of these changes they should actively manage their clinical problems for which they are not prepared. The aim of this quasi-experimental study was to determine the impact of empowerment on the quality of life, self efficacy, clinical and laboratory indicators of patients under hemodialysis. Subjects participated in this interventional study were 48 patients treated with haemodialysis at least for 3months who referred to Boo Ali Sina dialysis center located at Shiraz-in the south of Iran .Quality of life, self efficacy, clinical and laboratory indicators of all patients were measured by questionnaire ,interview and lab tests. Then they were randomly divided into two equal groups as control & experimental groups. In the next stage the experimental group participated in a 6 week empowerment program in which self management was enhanced by individual & group counselling. Quality of life, self efficacy, clinical and laboratory indicators in both groups were assessed 6 weeks after the implementation of intervention as post-test.
