Materials and methods: Thirty-two HD patients selected as before & after groups for the purpose of this research were investigated over the period of two months. Data collection tools included: 1-identify questionnaire and the quality of life general health 2-the questionnaire of educational evaluation tools designed by researcher 3-questionnaire sf-36 (QOL). Immediately after this time the researcher started to have some manipulation over the same group that had been considered as case. SPSS descriptive statistics, paired t-teat, wilcoxon and McNemar were applied to analyze the collected data.
Results: Data analysis showed that paired t-test there was a significant relationship between applying partnership care model and general dimensions of HD patients QOL (p<0.001). Paired t-test also revealed that there was a significant relationship between applying partnership care and specific dimension of HD patients QOL (p<0.001).
Conclusion: According to these finding, applying partnership care causes significant difference in the levels of both dimensions of HD patients QOL therefore, applying this caring model can promote HD patients quality of life.
