Learning Objective 1: explore the important factors influencing quality of life in hemodialysis patients.
Learning Objective 2: Expected results aimed to understand the basic personal attributes, nutrition, physical activity and quality of life related to hemodialysis patients.
This study is a descriptive correlational study with a randomly sampling approach. Data was collected through structured questionnaires in the hemodialysis centers of one organization's North, Central and South Taiwan branch. Participants consisted of hemodialysis outpatients who have been on hemodialysis for one year or more. The researchers collected a recent blood biochemical test value and asked participants to fill out the questionnaires either by themselves or with the help of others. The measurements included the physical activity scale (Typical Week Physical Activity SurveyGTWPAS), the nutritional value of the blood biochemical test and the quality of life and kidney disease scale (Kidney Disease Quality of Life; KDQOL-SFTM). Expected results aimed to understand the nutrition, physical activity and quality of life related to hemodialysis patients. The results of this study can become a reference guide that will assist clinical staffs in taking care of hemodialysis patients.
