It is important to identify predictors of quality of life (QOL) in
persons with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis because low QOL
is a risk factor for depression and suicide in this population. Self care
resources, as defined in the theory Modeling and Role-Modeling (Erickson,
et al., 1983), have been found to be predictive of QOL in persons with
cardiac disease. Self care resources can come from internal (self
efficacy, hope, control) or external (assistance, support, affiliation)
resources. This study was undertaken to examine if the same relationship
exists in a convenience sample of 42 persons undergoing chronic
hemodialysis. Subjects completed the 70 item, Likert-type Self Care
Resource Inventory (SCRI) and the 9 item semantic differential Index of
Well-Being (IWB). Both tools have established reliability and validity.
The SCRI has 6 subscales that measure resources (3 internal and 3
external) and 4 subscales that measure needs (2 internal and 2 external).
Research packets were distributed at the dialysis center and anonymity was
maintained. The mean age of the sample was 63.5 (sd +/-13.7) with a range
of 35 to 88 years. The sample had nearly equal gender representation, but
was predominately European-American (75%) with a 33 month history of
dialysis. The internal consistency of the SCRI subscales and the IWB was
adequate (>.80) in this sample. The IWB was used to measure QOL. The
summed score of the 3 internal resource subscales predicted 49% of the
variance in the scores on the IWB; however, neither external resources nor
needs were significant predictors. Based on these results, efforts to
increase internal resources such as control, hope, and self efficacy may
have the greatest benefit in promoting quality of life in persons with
chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis. Further model testing is
needed in a larger sample.
