Main Article Content
Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an emerging global public health problem. Control of risk factors and prevention of complications can delay the progression to end-stage renal disease. Self-efficacy and self-management behavior in patients with predialysis CKD has not been investigated in Nepal.
Objectives: To describe knowledge of CKD, self-efficacy, and self-management behavior in patients with predialysis CKD and to determine the relationships between knowledge in CKD and self-efficacy with self-management behavior.
Methods: Ninety-seven predialysis CKD patients visiting nephrology clinic of a tertiary care hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal were recruited from November 2016 to December 2016. Questionnaires comprised of sociodemographic data, CKD knowledge, self-efficacy, and self-management behavior questionnaires were used. Data were analyzed, using descriptive statistics and Pearson product moment correlation coefficient.
Results: The mean age of 97 participants was 45.67 years. There were 3 stages of CKD among participants: stage G4 (54.64%), stage G3 (42.27%), and stage G2 (3.09%), respectively. Hypertension was the most common comorbidity (81.44%) followed by diabetes mellitus (30.92%). Predialysis CKD patients had a moderate level of knowledge on CKD and self-efficacy and high level of self-management behavior. There were positive relationships between knowledge in CKD and self-management behavior (r = 0.52; P < .05), and between self-efficacy and self-management behavior (r = 0.39; P < .05).
Conclusions: This study suggested that education, counseling, workshop to increase the knowledge, self-efficacy, and self-management behavior might be helpful for the predialysis CKD patients. Healthcare providers can educate, motivate, and train the patients to practice self-management behavior to delay the progression of CKD.
