Method: The subjects were 102 patients on hemodialysis at 3 hospitals in B city. Data was collected using Shon(1986)'s questionnaire and measuring physiological parameters (serum urea nitrogen, creatinine, hemoglobin, albumin, potassium, phosphorus, interdialytic weight gain). Result: Mean scores of compliance with the therapeutic regimen was 4.00± 0.55 on a 5 point scale. The area of visiting hospitals and taking medicines were shown to have high compliance with therapeutic regimens; on the other hand, the areas concerning diet and symptoms were shown to be low. Interdialytic weight gain and phosphorus were significantly related to the compliance with therapeutic regimens. Conclusion: Hemodialysis patients' therapeutic compliance was related to the physiological parameters(potassium, phosphorus, interdialytic weight gain). Therefore, these findings give hemodialysis patients useful information for raising their therapeutic compliance.
