Chronic Renal Failure is the gradual loss of kidney function and has become the 6th deadliest disease worldwide. Hemodialysis is the most effective proven treatment method for chronic renal failure patients (CRF). It leads the patients to maintain satisfactory life with a long survival rate. Home care management is the comprehensive care provided at home.
To assess the pretest and post-test level of knowledge regarding home care management among patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis. To determine the effectiveness of the Self-Instructional Module (SIM) and to associate post-test knowledge scores with their demographic variables.
Quasi-experimental research designs had chosen for the study. 60 samples were taken using a convenient sampling technique. Samples were split into 30 studies and 30 control groups, respectively. A structured interview questionnaire was used to collect the data. Self-Instructional Module was given to the study group except for the control group after the pretest. Post-test was conducted on the study group using the same questionnaire as well as for the control group.
70% had moderate knowledge in the pretest for the control group. 23.3 % had inadequate knowledge in the study group for pretest, and it was increased to 73.3% in post-test after the intervention. Association between the demographic variables and post-test level of knowledge with study group indicates that there is no significant association. Whereas, in the control group, there is an association between the numbers of hemodialysis per week and the duration of hemodialysis in months.
The study concluded that the Self-Instructional Module (SIM) regarding home care management was more effective in enhancing the knowledge among hemodialysis patients.
