Gagani, A.; Gemao, J.; Relojo, D., & Pialo, S.J.

Around 400 new cases of chronic kidney disease are being delivered to nephrology clinics every year at an average of 20 patients a day. The current study aimed to construct a test instrument to assess the stages of acceptance and denial among patients with chronic kidney disease to identify the degree of denial among patients as a basis for intervention. A total of 116 participants took part in the study, consisting of new and follow-up cases. Six factors emerged from the study which characterised the aspects of denial and acceptance. The Renal Care Readiness Scale has been identified to have a good internal consistency.
