AbstractSpirituality is an important factor that may mediate the detrimental impacts of hemodialysis on mental health. Lack of research examining spirituality and mental health in the Arab world in general and Jordan in particular encouraged this research. The study examined levels of spirituality, depression and anxiety and explored the association between them among patients receiving hemodialysis treatment in Jordan. A cross-sectional design was used to recruit 202 patients receiving hemodialysis treatment. Self-administered questionnaires including spiritual well-being scale, depression and anxiety and a demographic da...
CONCLUSION: We report higher QoL and relatively better psychosocial profiles among current chronic hemodialysis patients than reported before. Psychosocial disorders specially anxiety can negatively impact QoL. Patients who were not cognitively impaired were more negatively affected in QOL. The findings re-emphasize the importance of the early detection and management of psychosocial disorders to improve QoL in chronic hemodialysis patients. PMID: 32893282 [PubMed - in process]

Conditions: Hemodialysis Complication; Fatigue; Anxiety Depression Intervention: Behavioral: Benson relaxation combined with music therapy Sponsor: Hacettepe University Completed
Conclusion: The most commonly affected domains were usual activities (79%), pain (76.20%) and anxiety/depression (71.91%). Factors such as age (>65 yrs.), BMI (Underweight and Obese), educational background (Illiterate), Unemployment, domiciliary status (Rural), number of medications (>11) had significant association with EQ–5D index and VAS scores (p–0.000). It was found that QoL was impaired in stage 5D compared to other stages (p–0.000).
