Abstract

Hemodialysis is the most frequent treatment method for CRF. However, it has been argued that a
number of restrictions and modifications accompany this treatment, which have a detrimental impact
on the quality of patient’s life and affect individuals’ physical and psychological well-being. Objective
of the study was to assess health promotional life style modification regarding prevention of comorbid
condition and complications of chronic renal failure among hemodialysis patient. A Quantitative
Research approach and Quasi experimental research design (Nonequivalent control group pretest post
Design) was used for the present study. The sample consisted of 200 chronic renal failure patients
undergoing hemodialysis were selected by convenient non probability sampling technique. Results
The finding of the study revealed that in experimental group, pretest Knowledge mean score of the
samples had 20.26 and in posttest knowledge mean score had 33.93 so the difference is 13.67, this
difference was large and it is statistically significant. Whereas in control group, pretest, this difference
was small and it was statistically not significant. In experimental group, mean pretest Practice score
of the samples showed statistically significant. In experimental group 16.28% improvement in QOL
score after intervention and in control group improvement score is 0.35%. This difference showed the
effectiveness of the study. Considering correlation between experimental group posttest knowledge
score and posttest practice score was (r=0.44 P≤01), correlation between experimental group posttest
knowledge score and posttest QOL score was (r=0.45 P≤01) and correlation between posttest practice
score and QOL score was (r=0.52 P≤01). It showed moderate positive correlation among them. The
result of the present study suggest that health promotional life style modification is necessary to reduce
complications and co morbidities which is occur due to CRF and enhance quality of life of chronic
patients.
