Abstract
Approximately more than 13,758 people in Indonesia are affected by end-stage renal disease (ESRD); 80% undergoing hemodialysis. Hemodialysis patients have many problems resulting from the disease itself and treatment process which significantly impacts psychosocial health and quality of life. Non-adherence to treatment is a common problem of great clinical relevance among hemodialysis patients. However, few studies address the psychosocial factors of non-adherence, especially among Indonesia people. This study was aimed to understand the psychosocial factors associated with non-adherence in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: This was a qualitative study, set in the hemodialysis unit of Islamic Hospital in Bandung, total of 11 patients were selected and were invited to semi-structured interviews with open-ended questions. The data obtained were analyzed using thematic analysis based on research of psychosocial factors associated with non-adherence in hemodialysis patients. Result: The analysis of the data led to the extraction of psychosocial factors associated with non-adherence: knowledge, health belief and social support. This research found that acceptance and patient-physician relationship also associated with adherence to treatment.
