Background and Objectives: Promoting illness perception could improve quality of life in hemodialysis patients. According to the high rates of renal diseases and hemodialysis in Iran, and importance of illness perception in these patients, this study assessed the effect of an illness perception promoting intervention on quality of life of hemodialysis patients. Materials and Methods: In this clinical trial, 71 hemodialysis patients were randomly allocated into two control (n=33) and intervention (n=38) groups. The patients in the intervention group received the illness perception intervention through 45-minute sessions per week for six weeks. Eight weeks later, patients in both groups completed the post test questionnaire of quality of life (KDQOL-SFTM). This questionnaire is reliable and valid for Iranian population. Results: Although the illness perception promoting intervention could enhance the quality of life of patients in dimensions of job situation, dialysis staff encouragement, physical role, pain, public health and emotional role, there were only significant differences between the two groups in job situation (p=0.04) and emotional role (p=0.03) dimensions on the patlents' satisfaction from rules and regulations and the teaching methods (P<0.05). Conclusion: Illness perception promotion interventions can improve only limited dimensions of the quality of life in hemodialysis patients. Further studies are needed to assess the effectiveness of illness perception promoting intervention on quality of life.

Background and Objectives: Patients with breast cancer have many pshychological needs. The spouses are main resources for meeting the psychological needs of the patients. The aim of present study was to assess the effects of psychoeducation to spouses on psychological needs of women with breast cancer. Materials and Methods: In this randomised clinical trial, 94 couples were recruited to the study from Tabriz support group for breast cancer patients. The couples were randomly allocated to experimental (47 couples) and control (47 couples) groups. After the baseline measurements, three educational sessions were held for men on psychological needs of their spouses with breast cancer in the experimental group. One month later, all women were asked to complete the 22-items psychological subscale of the Supportive Care Needs Survey instrument. The validity and reliability of the instrument was assessed using content validity, and test-retest reliability. Data were analyzed using paired and independent samples t tests. Results: Data from 27 women in the experimental group and 28 women in the control group were collected. The mean of scale in the experimental group was significantly more than control group (p=0.010). Conclusion: Although the psychological needs of patients with breast cancer were decreased via the intervention in our study, further studies are recommended.

Background and Objectives: Caring is central to the nature of nursing. Due to the special conditions of patients in the critical care wards, caring behaviors are important to be considered. Despite the important role of nurses in quality of care, viewpoints of nurses on the caring behaviors are unclear. This study investigated the views of critical care nurses toward caring behaviors priorities. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive-correlative study, 200 critical care nurses were selected based on the stratified random sampling. Data were collected using the Caring Questionnaire developed by Larson. Caring behaviors were ranked on a 5-point Likert-type scale with 57 caring behavior items ordered in six subscales. The data were analyzed using the statistical methods in the SPSS-21.0. Results: Results showed that the highest priority was related to the "confident communication with patients" and the lowest priority was related to the "being accessible" and "anticipation". Furthermore, nurses ages had significant relationship with physical relaxation, confident relationship and follow-ups through subgroups (p=0.01). Female nurses ranked "monitors and follow-ups through" higher than male nurses (p=0.01). Conclusion: Most nurses based their work according to the confident communication with patients. The availability and anticipated needs of the patients care were identified as the lowest priorities. Providing long-term and short-term programs by policymakers in order to conduct appropriate trainings are recommended.
