Conclusion: There was a statistically significant difference for the mean scores of physiological, self-concept, work role function, and independence and interdependence mode of patients on pre and post-application of RAM. There was observed improvement in adaptation level among patients undergoing hemodialysis after application of RAM, especially in Independence and Interdependence mode. Recommendations: Encourage further study on theory-based patient care for chronic and acute illnesses.
