Renal failure is analyzed when the kidneys are done working sufficiently to keep up the ordinary procedure. This results in imbalance in fluid electrolytes, calcium level, RBC creation and diminished disposal of waste items. The main purpose of this study adequacy of pictorial instructional module on information regarding lifestyle modification among renal failure patients undergoing haemodialysis. Quantitative approach and quasi experimental design used in this study. The sample size was 60 renal failure patients undergoing haemodialysis. Organized meeting was utilized to gather demographic data regarding lifestyle modification among renal failure undergoing haemodialysis patient used pictorial instructional module. Sample includes renal failure patient undergoing haemodialysis at saveetha medical college and hospital, who fulfils the inclusion criteria were chosen non-likelihood advantageous examining strategy. The assessment of level of information about renal failure patient among haemodialysis29 (48.33%) had moderately adequate and adequate information, 2(3.34%) had inadequate, 29(48.33%) adequate information regarding lifestyle modification of renal failure patients undergoing haemodialysis. The mean score of information among renal failure patient was 22.20 with standard deviation of 3.64. The calculated paired ‘t’ test value of t=17.218 was found to be statistically highly significant at p<0.001 level. The demographic variable, sex had shown statistically significant association with post test level of information regarding lifestyle modification among renal failure patients undergoing haemodialysis at p<0.05 level. This obviously construes pictorial instructional module managed to renal disappointment patients experiencing haemodialysis brought about a huge improvement in the post test level of information.
