- A patient with ESRD who uses haemodialysis faces in addition to a debilitating and disruptive chronic illness, a treatment regimen that is complex, demanding and incessantly intrusive on personal and social life and the intrusiveness of these thoughts is related to depression (Christensen and Ehlers, 2014).
- The importance of having an accurate estimate of frequency and nature of psychosocial problems faced by haemodialysis recipients which is affecting their coping with the illness has triggered the interest in this study. Therefore this research was conducted to assess the psychosocial status of haemodialysis recipients in selected Hospitals in Anambra State.
