From February 1986 to July 1995, 269 cases of renal transplantation have been performed at Ramathibodi Hospital, Thailand. Patients’ adaptation to life after renal transplantation may be influenced by personal and social factors. The purpose of this descriptive research was twofold: 1) to study the hardiness characteristic, social support, and adaptation in post renal transplant patient; 2) to ascertain the relationships among adaptation, hardiness characteristic, and social support after adjusting for the effects of demographic variables. The Roy Adaptation Model was used as a conceptual framework for this study. Ninety post renal transplant patients, purposively selected from surgical out-patient department at Ramathibodi Hospital, Thailand, were included in the study. Each of them voluntarily participated by completing 4 questionnaires: 1) Demographic questionnaire, 2) The Health Related Hardiness Scale (Pollock & Duffy, 1990), 3) The Personal Resource Questionnaire part 2 (Brandt & Weinert, 1985), and 4) The Adaptation in Post Renal Transplant Patient (developed by the investigator). Results indicated that the patient had a high hardiness characteristic, a high perceived social support, and good adaptation both in physical and psychosocial aspects. Regression analysis revealed that after adjusting for the effects of demographic variables, social support significantly correlated with adaptation. Additional analyses were rendered by separating the subjects into two groups: a) patient with the first two years post transplant, and b) patient with more than two years post transplant. Regression analysis of the first group revealed that after adjusting for the effects of demographic variables, both social support and hardiness characteristic had significant correlations with adaptation; whereas there was no any variables significantly correlated with adaptation in the second group.
