Drug side effects a key factor in reduced quality of life for kidney transplant patients
Date:11/23/2009

ceptions of what they could achieve with their current health and the support they received was high.

However, both levels were higher in the year after surgery than one to three years post transplant, falling from 32.0 to 29.31 and from 90.33 to 85.58 respectively.

Transplant recipients who experienced a larger number of symptoms were more negative about their health and reported that their physical and mental health-related quality of life was lower than those with less symptoms.

The side effects of immunosuppressive medication had statistically significant effects on selected psychosocial variables, such as how they judged their health, what they felt they could achieve, how well they coped and their health-related quality of life.

"Renal transplant patients face many new challenges after transplantation and need to develop new coping strategies and renal transplant nurses can play a key role in that process" says Dr Liu.

"Our research shows that they need to offer more social support to recipients in the later transplant period.

"They also need to provide patients with advice on post-transplant care, immunosuppressive medication and self-care skills, together with initiatives that enhance their positive appraisal of their health, their belief in what they can achieve and their ability to cope effectively."
