Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The reasons such as the fact that individuals with chronic diseases are mostly in the old age and that the diseases lead to changes in physical and psychological fields may bring about an increase of dependence in meeting daily needs. This study aims to determine the relationship between care dependency and compliance to treatment and life satisfaction in individuals with chronic physical diseases.
Material and methods: This research designed as a descriptive and relationship-seeking style includes 294 individuals with chronic physical diseases who were hospitalized for internal medicine clinics of a university hospital. After the ethics committee permission, the data were obtained by patient identification form, Care Dependency Scale, Modified Morisky Scale and Life Satisfaction Scale.
Results: It was found out that the level of care dependency and motivation and knowledge levels of the individuals were positively weak (p0.05), and that there was a positive moderate relationship between care dependency and life satisfaction level (p0.01). In addition, individuals’ life satisfaction and motivation level in drug use account for 23% of the total variance in care dependence. In addition, 23% of the change in individuals’ dependency on care results from life satisfaction and motivation for medication use.
Conclusions: As the levels of independence increases in fulfilling the care requirements of individuals with chronic physical disease, their compliance with drug and life satisfaction also tend to increase. Moreover, compliance to treatment and the life satisfaction of individuals are also important determinants in care dependency.

Keywords: Care dependency; chronic disease; compliance to treatment; life satisfaction
