ABSTRACT

Studies of human emotions have predominantly discussed negative emotions and negative effects, whereas positive emotions and beneficial effects have rarely been considered. The purpose of this study was to explore the potential effects of positive and negative emotions on self-management behavior among persons undergoing hemodialysis. A descriptive study and secondary analysis were conducted using two surveys that were administered two years apart (2014, 2016). A total of 250 hemodialysis patients were included in the first survey and 75 participated in the two-year follow-up survey in 2016. Participants were recruited from nine hemodialysis clinics in Seoul. Self-efficacy, serenity, and depression were measured at baseline, and self-management was assessed at the two-year follow-up. Baseline self-efficacy (r = .36, p = .002) and serenity (r = .32, p = .005) were positively associated with follow-up self-management behavior. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis showed baseline self-efficacy was a significant predictor of self-management behaviors, explaining 10.7% of the variance (F = 5.14, p= .003). This study demonstrated the importance of maintaining a positive psychological state, particularly self-efficacy and serenity, while coping with a long-term chronic disease. Improving self-efficacy may increase self-management behavior of patients undergoing hemodialysis or potentially of patients with other chronic therapies or conditions.
