21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine barriers to health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in 49 patients with end-stage renal disease(ESRD), including activity restrictions, low index of estimated glomerular filtration rate, co-morbidities, inadequate life attitudes and change of emotion status, and to test the relationship between barriers to HRQOL. Methods: A cross-sectional, descriptive correlational design with self-administered questionnaires was conducted in two hospitals in central Taiwan. The measurement tools were used as follows: demographic information, life attitude scale, Taiwanese depression questionnaire, Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form 36 (SF-36) which consists of eight dimensions, namely physical functioning (PF), role physical (RP), bodily pain (BP), general health (GH), vitality (VT), social functioning (SF), role emotional (RE) and mental health (MH). Results: (1) In patients with ESRD who were more positive life attitude, HRQOL was significantly better(p<0.05). (2) Few number of samples was in the level of mild, moderate and severe depression (14.3%). Higher TDQ scores were strongly inversely associated with lower scores of all eight dimensions of the SF-36 (P<0.01). (3) After adjusting for demographic and clinical factors, multiple linear regression analyses showed that educational background, marriage, age, estimated glomerular filtration rate, freedom and independence, the feeling of being, and attitude toward death accounted for 13.5 % to 44 % variance in all eight dimensions of the SF-36. Conclusion: The results can be as references to provide the health interventions of adjustment and positive life attitudes in patients with ESRD. Developing the multidisciplinary educationÿfrom health-care providers to individualized plans of care is a continuing need.
