Area of research / Subject: Assessment of Hope, Social Support and Quality of Life Among Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease Undergoing Hemodialysis in Teaching Hospitals in Ogun State

Chronic kidney disease also known as End Stage Renal disease Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) also known as End Stage Renal Disease is an emergent worldwide public health problem. These patients experience diverse health challenges, necessitating life style changes and hemodialysis as a means of survival. Studies have shown that hope and social support in the face of a life threatening condition is paramount. Hence this study aims to assess the correlation between hope, social support and quality of life among patients with chronic kidney disease, undergoing hemodialysis. The study adopted a descriptive design. The participants comprised of 190 hemodialysis patients who attended the renal clinic or dialyzed at the dialysis unit of the teaching hospitals in Ogun State, Nigeria. Participants were selected using convenient sampling. A structured questionnaire which was validated was used for data collection. Data was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 27). The result revealed that participants had high level of hope (52%) at a mean score of 3.1649 while most participants in this study were well supported with a frequency of 96% positive response at a mean score of 5.6654. Most participants have average quality of life, only 14% had high QOL at a mean score of 3.4769 and about 8 participants (4.2%) had low quality of life. The study showed no significant correlation between hope and quality of life (0.056) and no significant correlation between social support and quality of life (0.092). However, there is a significant correlation between level of hope and the level of social support. (r = 0.373, p= 0.000). In conclusion, the findings of this study revealed that most respondents have high hope, with a corresponding social support from significant others. They experienced an average quality of life. It was recommended among others that friends of patients with CKD should be more available and provide more support for them.
