Relationship of self efficacy, physical symptoms and general well-being of chronic kidney disease patients: A pilot study


Ishak Mohammad, Pity Kaul

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one amongst the chronic diseases across the globe, Stage four & five of CKD necessitates patients to either go for renal transplantation or for lifelong haemodialysis therapy. In case of haemodialysis therapy self efficacy becomes critical to manage chronic kidney disease, so symptom control, and hence general well-being. The objective of the pilot study was to investigate the relationship of self efficacy, physical symptoms and general well-being of chronic kidney disease patients. In this study a quantitative research approach, co-relational research design was adopted. Total fourteen CKD patients, who were undergoing haemodialysis, were selected by purposive sampling technique and data was collected by Self-Efficacy for Managing Chronic Disease 6-Item Scale, self report physical symptoms assessment scale & PGI General Well-Being Measure. Results of the pilot study showed that there was inverse (negative) moderate correlation between the self efficacy & physical symptoms (r = -0.52, p˃0.05); physical symptoms & general well being (r = -0.65, p˂0.05).
