Abstract

EVALUATION OF IMPACT OF COUNSELING AND ROLE OF CLINICAL PHARMACIST ON QUALITY OF LIFE OF HEMODIALYSIS PATIENTS

Muhammed Junais K.*, Salwa Ameerudheen and Dr. Anjana John

ABSTRACT

The kidney is one of the most highly differentiated organs in the body. The reduction in renal function observed in CKD results from damage to the infrastructure of the kidney in discrete areas rather than throughout the kidney. The main objective is to study the impact of counseling and the Role of clinical pharmacists on quality of life of hemodialysis patients. A cross sectional observational study was done between case and control group, for a period of 6 months among the patients on hemodialysis not less than 84 in number in which half of the population was case and half was control. QOL is measured by administering SF36 survey before counseling and after one month of counseling. Health related quality of life in case group showed a consistent improvement in one month and no significant improvement observed in control group. From the study, patient counseling focusing on dialysis compliance, diet and medications were found to be an effective way to improve health-related QoL and awareness in ESRD. Such services should be made mandatory by law in India to improve outcomes in chronic illness.

Keywords: CKD, QoL, patient counseling, hemodialysis.
