Abstract
Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of kidney transplant recipients is an outcome evaluation
after kidney transplants. Therefore, we investigated the associations among perceived
health status, social support, self-determination, post-traumatic growth, and kidney transplant
recipients’ HRQOL. This study involved a descriptive, self-report survey of 163 kidney
transplant recipients visiting an outpatient solid organ transplant center in South Korea. Participants’
general and transplant characteristics, perceived health status, post-traumatic
growth, social support, self-determination, and HRQOL were collected. Data were statistically
analyzed using the software SPSS version 25.0. HRQOL showed statistically significant
positive correlation with perceived health status (r = .56, p < .001), post-traumatic
growth (r = .18, p = .022), social support (r = .25, p = .002), and self-determination (r = .36,
p < .001). The factors affecting HRQOL were perceived health status (β = 0.47, p < 0.001),
post-transplant occupation (β = 0.17, p = 0.009), and income source (β = -0.13, p = 0.046).
The explanatory power of these variables was 34.8% (F = 28.81, p < 0.001). In the subdomains
of HRQOL, the factors influencing HRQOL of mental component summary were perceived
health status (β = 0.45, p < 0.001), self-determination (β = 0.27, p < 0.001), and
education level (β = 0.18, p = 0.006). The explanatory power of these variables was 34.8%
(F = 28.81, p < 0.001). To promote the HRQOL of kidney transplant recipients, an institutional
system to assist kidney transplant recipients in returning to work needs to be developed.
Additionally, creating an environment that allows kidney transplant recipients to act
with self-determination, and developing intervention programs that can enhance self-determination
will contribute to enhancing the HRQOL of kidney transplant recipients.
