Abstract
Patients with Tuberculosis (Tb) often have high morbidity and low quality of life. Family coping was the essential part of patients' quality of life and may also give support to patients with Tb. Our study aimed to determine the correlation of family coping and quality of life in patients with Tuberculosis. This was a cross-sectional study, the participants were selected purposively from primary health care (PHC) database and screened based on inclusion criteria; Aged 15-54 years, consented to study, and have completed intensive phase of Tb treatment. The quality of life was measure using WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire and coping capacity with F-COPES evaluation tools. The correlation coefficient was calculated using Pearson correlation test. From a total of 67 patients registered with Tb at the PHC, 34 patients met inclusion criteria. Mean score of a family coping, and patients' quality of life were 77.05 and 68.73 respectively. Pearson product test showed significant relationships (P < 0.05) with strong correlation (r = 0.514) between the two variables. It can be concluded that family coping is positively correlated with the quality of life of a patient with pulmonary tuberculosis. Further research is needed to determine driving factors that can affect the quality of life of pulmonary tuberculosis.
