Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is described as a global health crisis. Hemodialysis (HD) is a treatment that helps CKD patients prolong their lives. However, not all patients accept HD. To date, there is limited understanding of the factors for this resistance, especially in developing countries. This Phenomenological study employed individual telephone interviews with 35 CKD patients. The interview questions were related to the refusal factors of HD. Thematic analysis revealed six themes—concerns about becoming a burden to others, cost, age considerations, advice from others, fear regarding HD treatment, and self-healing plans. This study is vital to support medical social workers in strategizing early interventions to improve hemodialysis acceptance among CKD patients. The ability of medical social workers to understand these factors and tailor appropriate interventions will help improve the treatment acceptance and outcomes.
