Bottom Line: This study was aimed to investigate the effect of family-based training on common side-effects during dialysis.The mean ages of the patients in patient-centered and the family-oriented groups were 47.41 ± 10.31 and 48.16 ± 9.21, respectively.According to the result of this study, the presence of families in a treatment plan could be essential to follow the treatment plan and subsequently reduced the complications of hemodialysis.

ABSTRACT

Background: Poor adherence to treatment in patients undergoing hemodialysis leads to many complications, including death of the patient.

Objectives: This study was aimed to investigate the effect of family-based training on common side-effects during dialysis.

Patients and methods: The present randomized controlled trial study was conducted on 60 patients undergoing hemodialysis at hospitals of Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Iran, from May 2012 to October 2012. Samples were randomly divided into two groups of patient-education (n = 30) and education of patient associated with an active member of the family (n = 30). Blood pressure, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, headaches and muscle cramps were followed with a check list and a questionnaire. The frequencies of the abovementioned complications at the mentioned intervals were recorded in three stages (before the intervention as well as two and four weeks after the intervention). Data analysis was performed using SPSS software, version 16, with chi-square test, Fisher's exact test and independent t-test.

Results: The mean ages of the patients in patient-centered and the family-oriented groups were 47.41 ± 10.31 and 48.16 ± 9.21, respectively. The result showed that some of the variables such as chest pain (P = 0.50, P = 0.01), nausea (P = 0.50, P = 0.01), headache (P = 0.81, P = 0.016), and blood pressure (P = 0.91, P = 0.016) were statistically significant before and four weeks after the intervention.

Conclusions: According to the result of this study, the presence of families in a treatment plan could be essential to follow the treatment plan and subsequently reduced the complications of hemodialysis.
