STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM: Assess the quality of life (QOL) of patients undergoing haemodialysis in Vinayaka Mission Hospital, Salem, Tamilnadu. NEED FOR THE STUDY: Chronic renal failure is a debilitating condition responsible for high morbidity and mortality and is a financial burden on government and society. Because of its cost and the complexity of its treatment, proper care is available to very few patients in India (Sanjaykumar. A 2005) Worldwide prevalence of chronic renal failure is high, it is a major public health problem, and the global incidence of chronic renal failure is 1.8 million/ year (WHO, 2000). Incidence of chronic renal failure is increasing 8% every year and 89% of patients are on haemodialysis and 11% on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (kidney consultants international, 2007) It is presumed that incidence of ESRD in India is 1, 00,000 or 100/pmp/year (Extrapolation from western data, 2000) The alarming increase of new ESRD patients has resulted in an incremental expansion of resources, health facilities and consequently expenses (Austin G.S, 2004)
