Background & Objects: Inadequate knowledge in self-care in these patients causes the deterioration of the condition of the disease and the reduction of their life expectancy. Therefore, this study was conducted with the aim of determining the effect of self-care program training on life expectancy in hemodialysis patients referred to Tohid Hospital in Sanandaj, 2021.
Materials and Methods: The present study was a semi-experimental study that all patients with the inclusion criteria were selected by census method in two intervention and control groups. Demographic and life expectancy questionnaires were recorded before and one month after the intervention. The intervention consisted of three individual and face-to-face training sessions during hemodialysis of patients about hemodialysis, drug treatment, fluid intake, and diet. Patients in the control group received the necessary care according to routine.
Results: The findings of the study showed that the average life expectancy score in the intervention group before the intervention (17.86±2.31) and after the intervention (20.16±4.43) had a significant difference (P<0.05), but this difference was not significant in the control group (P=0.36). Also, there was a statistically significant difference in the life expectancy score between the two groups after the intervention (p<0.05), so that the life expectancy score in the intervention group was higher than the control group.
Conclusion: Self-care education leads to increased awareness and improvement of the quality of care in patients and will lead to an increase in life expectancy in these patients.
