Abstract

The study employed a cross-sectional research design. Thirty-six (36) patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis for at least six months, aged 19 and above, coherent to time, person and place were selected through a simple random sampling. A self-administered questionnaire was used and data was analysed using percentage and frequency distribution. Results have shown that all of the respondents have a functional family. Out of the 36 respondents, 91.70% of them have good quality of life while 8.30% have poor quality of life. Prevalence ratio obtained for the association of family function and quality of life was 5.286 (CI 0.5864, 47.65). The value of alpha used was 0.05, beta was set at 0.20, confidence level of 95% and power of 80%. Results have shown a p-value of 0.3642 which was not statistically significant. Testing for confounders was not done due to insufficient evidence to prove an association between quality of life and family function.
