Materials & Methods: In this study of quasi -experimental clinical trial (with two groups of experimental and control) 60 patients with inclusion criteria through convenience sampling with random allocation were arranged in two experimental and control groups. In the experimental group, the educational intervention to promote partnership with medical team was made in 4 sessions by group discussion. The control group received routine interventions. Data were collected through using standard questionnaire before and 3 months after intervention. Data were analyzed via SPSS software version 18and with the use of chi-square tests, t-test, and Mann-Whitney nonparametric tests such as Wilcoxon test.
Results: The results regarding to demographic and contextual characteristics showed that both experimental and control groups were homogeneous in all variables before intervention (p>0.05) except for (age,diagnosis age of renal failure and source of education acquisition about dialysis).The analyzed results through using the Mann-Whitney test, and Wilcoxon test also showed that the mean scores of partnership with the medical team after the implementation of group discussion between the experimental and control groups were significantly different(p<0.001).
