Biography: Imran Aslan
Treatments of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) are analyzed in Bingöl city and at regional level. CKD is a major problem in Bingöl and Turkey. Increasing numbers of CKDs cause dissatisfaction and extra load on healthcare staffs and families in Bingöl city. Two main hospitals in Bingöl giving dialysis services are controlled and responsible staffs were interviewed. Then, two surveys with 96 and 78 respondents at different times in 2015 were carried out of 160 patients, respectively. Having a high health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is an important performance indicator for dialysis centers at the treatment of end stage renal disease (ESRD). KDQOL™-36 Scoring Program (v 2.0) and SPSS 20 versions are used to find the life quality of patients and compare respondents according to education, gender and hospital by One-way ANOVA test. Just hemodialysis (HD) treatment is suggested at Bingöl city center and life qualities of private hospital patients were found better than government hospital, when both surveys are compared. Moreover, the burden and effects of CKD are found the most significant factors which affect the life quality of patients in Bingol city, Turkey.
