Abstract

The research was conducted to determine the comfort level of patients receiving hemodialysis treatment and the affecting factors. The research conducted between January and March 2021, was conducted in three dialysis centers affiliated with hospitals located in two provinces in the Northeast of Turkey, with 145 patients receiving hemodialysis treatment within the scope of the research inclusion criteria. The data of the study were collected by face-to-face interview technique using the "Introductory Information Form", "Charlson Comorbidity Index" and "Hemodialysis Comfort Scale (HCS)". The HCS total mean score of the patients included in the study was 26.03±5.58, the Overcoming subscale mean score was 6.41±3.13, and the Relaxation subscale mean score was 19.67±4.59. It was found that 33.8% of the patients had a Charlson Comorbidity Index score between three and four. It was determined that the comfort levels of those who received hemodialysis treatment for six to ten years and those who received constant support from family members were significantly higher (p<0.05). It was determined that the comfort level of patients receiving hemodialysis treatment was at a moderate level, and the duration of treatment and receiving support from the family were among the factors affecting comfort. In this context, it is recommended to provide nursing care and practices that increase the comfort level of patients who have received hemodialysis treatment for ten years or more, and to ensure that patients are supported by family members during the treatment process.
