Patients with chronic renal failure and their ability to cope.
1996 (English)In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 10, no 2, 89-95 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The subject studied in this paper, describing uremic patients' use of coping strategies and their sense of coherence, was 48 consecutively selected patients with chronic renal failure at a Swedish hospital. The questionnaires used were the Jalowiec Coping Scale (JCS-40) and the Sense of Coherence Scale (SOC). The results showed that the patients used a variety of coping strategies, such as maintaining control, finding out more about the situation and hoping. In the use of coping styles, the confrontational style was the most favoured one, compared with the palliative and the emotive styles. There was a significant distinction between the predialysis patients and those on dialysis treatment concerning the use of strategies and coping styles. Patients on dialysis treatment showed significantly higher scores in overall strategies and in confrontational and palliative coping styles. The results revealed significant correlations between the JCS and the SOC scores, age and duration of kidney disease. Knowledge of the patients' commonly used coping strategies and sense of coherence is important when nursing care is being planned for the patient.
