Abstract
Introduction: The study determined the delivery of palliative nursing care of ESRD patients in selected hemodialysis centers in Region I, Philippines. It also identified the level of satisfaction on the quality of life of ESRD patients. This study involved (n= 80) hemodialysis nurses and (n= 252) ESRD patients as respondents of the study. Methods: The study used descriptive research and utilized weighted mean, Pearson r and spearman rank correlation. Results: Results of the study showed the level of palliative care competencies of nurse respondents along; (a) physical domain, (b) psycho-social domain (c) spiritual domain; (d) ethico-legal domain and found out that nurses perceived themselves “highly competent”. The level of supportive care competencies by hemodialysis nurses along; (a) philosophy of care (b) end of life care and death management; (c) loss grief bereavement support (d) professional development is found to be “highly competent”, respectively. Moreover, the level of quality of life of ESRD patients along; (a) Physical need is “moderately satisfied”; (b) psychosocial needs is found to be “highly satisfied”; while (c) spiritual needs is “highly satisfied”; A statistically significant positive correlation (df=78 r=0.87, p≤0.001) was found between palliative nursing care competencies and supportive care rendered to ESRD patients. In contrast, the level of palliative nursing competencies is negatively correlated (df=330 rs=-0.4, p=0.006) with the quality of life of ESRD patients. Conclusion: Academic plan was suggested to enhance the course curriculum of nursing in palliative care for ESRD patients.
