Introduction: Women living with husband on hemodialysis face multiple challenges which impact their quality of lives and coping styles. This study was performed to investigate the relationship of coping strategies with quality of life in women living with husband
on hemodialysis.
Methods: This was a correlational study. The convenience sample consisted of 212 women living with husband on hemodialysis who had come to hospitals of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in 2016. Data were collected using the brief COPE and World
Health organization (WHO) quality of life. Pearson’s correlation coefficient and ANOVA by SPSS software (version 21) were conducted for data analysis.
Results: Psychological health of women was found the lowest among the other sub-scales of quality of life. Quality of life had a positive significant correlation with problem-oriented coping strategies (r = 0.71, P = 0.001) and a negative relationship with emotion focused
coping strategies (r = -0.53, P = 0.04). The results showed that religious (3.74 ± 0.57) and substance use (1.99 ± 0.7) as two coping strategies were the highest and lowest strategies used by women living with husband on hemodialysis. Conclusions: Coping strategies are influential in quality of life in women living with husband on hemodialysis. Psychology support programs are needed to help to frequent use of problem-focused coping and reduce emotion-focused coping strategies to improve overall quality of life.
