End-stage renal disease and its treatments negatively affect quality of life. Self-care is an important approach for helping the patients deal with their problems. The aim of this study was to improve self-care and quality of life of haemodialysis patients through teaching and evaluating their quality of life. This cross-section design with pre-post assessment was conducted in the dialysis unit of Suez Canal University Hospitals, participants were 50 patients receiving maintenance haemodialysis. Data were collected using a structured interview questionnaire, and the Kidney Disease Quality of Life Scale Short Form. Statistically the results show significant improvements that were revealed in the scores of many domains of quality of life, p < 0.001, except the physical domain. Statistically significant associations were revealed between pre- and postprogramme improvement in the total quality-of-life scores. The statistically significant independent predictors of quality-of-life improvement were programme attendance, dialysis duration and marital status.
