There is general agreement in the literature with regard to improved quality of life following kidney transplantation compared to the pre transplantation period, especially, when clients are on hemodialysis. In Bahrain, kidney transplantation has been started recently and is limited to live-related donors. There is no provision for organ donation or a cadaveric kidney bank. Therefore, clients with End Stage Renal Disease are expected to be more dependent on hemodialysis. Prolonged dependency on hemodialysis increases the risk that these clients will experience greater stress, which may decrease their physical and psychological well-being and lead to maladaptation. The purpose of this study was to determine the difference in clients rating of quality of life of hemodialysis and transplant clients. fifty subjects on hemodialysis and 50 subjects who had successful kidney transplant were interviewed using; demographic data sheet, quality of life scale, and one open-ended question. Preliminary analysis showed that clients on hemodialysis perceived their quality of life as being lower than before they were started on hemodialysis treatment, while clients with successful kidney transplant perceived their quality of life as being higher than before they had the transplant. The domains of quality of life were centered around financial, social, psychological, physical, and family domains. Intended outcomes: 1. To determine the difference in clients' ratings of quality of life. 2. To identify the critical domains of quality of life of hemodialysis and kidney transplant clients.
