Introduction: due to the Importance of identifying different aspects of well- bing in Hemodialysis patients, this study aimed at determining well- being and its dimensions in Hemodialysis patients referring to Hospitals of Zahedan University of Medical Sciences in 2016. Material and Methods: This descriptive – analytical study was performed among 129 patients with Hemodialysis by the use of census .The data-gathering instrument was a two part questionnaire. In the first part, there were questions about socio-demographic characteristics (7 questions) followed by the second part which was a standard questionnaire related to well- being and Hemodialysis (36 questions). The reliability and validity of the questionnaire were evaluated. In order to analyze the data, we made use of SPSS software and descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation and analytical tests including independent t-test, ANOVA and Pearson correlation coefficient. The significance level was set in 0.05 (p ˂0.05).Results: the study showed that the mean score of total emotional well-being was 138.95±21.9. There were statistically significant correlations between gender and spiritual dimension (p=0.03), between educational level and physical (p=0.04) and mental dimensions (p=0.03), family income was significantly correlated with mental (p=0.04), social (p=0.03) and intellectual dimensions (p=0.03). Moreover, Emotional well-being had the highest correlation with mental dimension (p<0.001, r=0.912).Conclusion: the current study revealed that the mean score of well- being was more than average. Furthermore, the factors such as gender, educational level and income level are known as the factors affecting emotional well-being in patients affected by Hemodialysis. Therefore, paying special attention to these patients’ needs can lead to useful outcomes and will promote the patients’ life quality.
