Individualized Nursing Management Program INPUT PROCESS OUTPUT FEEDBACK
▪ This study aims to assess and describe the quality of life of patients diagnosed with CKD which shall serve as a basis in creating a backdrop for an individualized nursing management program. ▪ Specifically, it seeks to answer the following problems:
1. What is the demographic profile of patients in terms of the following: a.Age; b.Gender; c.Civil Status; d.Educational Attainment; e.Support System (financial capacity); f.Duration of Illness?
