Nephrology nurses play a major role in every aspect of caring for patients on dialysis. It is always challenging to witness patients and families struggling through dialysis modality changes coupled with end-of-life decisions. Open discussions and care provided by an interdisciplinary team approach provides the foundational structure for quality care necessary for this population. In the case of Mr. T., a dialysis modality change was a necessary change in his life. The FNP PCP played a significant role in coordinating his care to achieve the desired outcomes and ensure there was a coordinated team approach...

Clinical research nursing is becoming more visible to nephrology professionals. As more nephrology practices and units are participating in clinical trials, clinical research nursing is gaining interest as a career niche among nephrology nurses. This unique specialty requires that nephrology clinical nurse nurses (CRNs) reconcile the roles of nurse as caregiver and nurse as researcher, which may result in a role conflict. Nephrology nurses should be aware that they may experience this role conflict when transitioning from patient care to a position as a clinical research nurse...

In the United States, an increasing number of individuals are being diagnosed with end stage renal disease requiring renal replacement therapy. Home dialysis modalities are an available option in lieu of in-center hemodialysis therapy for these individuals, but are vastly underutilized in the U.S. for multiple reasons. Both healthcare providers and individuals requiring renal replacement therapy are frequently unaware these modalities are an available alternative to in-center hemodialysis and of the potential benefits related to home modality use...

The person with kidney failure may experience many lifestyle disruptions that initiate distressing responses. This article reports on the results of a phenomenological study that explored the experiences of patients with kidney failure who were receiving outpatient hemodialysis therapy and who were either on the transplant list or in the process of being assessed to get on the transplant list. The participants described the existential distress they endured as a result of living with this disease and treatment; however, the participants' descriptions of distress were different than the psychological perspective of emotional distress depicted in the existing research...

African Americans face a disproportionate burden related to the incidence of end stage renal disease. A literature search was conducted for research articles published between 2006-2015 to synthesize current literature related to non-biological barriers to early stages of the pre-kidney transplant continuum for African Americans in the United States. Twenty-four articles were included in the final sample. Eleven barriers were identified. Barriers were categorized as socioeconomic-based barriers, culture-based barriers, and knowledge-based barriers...

This two-group, repeated-measures experimental study assessed the efficacy of a nurse practitioner-facilitated chronic kidney disease (CKD) group visit (GV) model versus usual nephrology care for patients with Stage 4 CKD. The study enrolled patients from two sites of an outpatient nephrology practice (n = 30) and randomized subjects to usual care (n = 14) or to the GV model (n = 16). Data regarding CKD knowledge, self-efficacy/disease self-management, and physiologic measures were collected at baseline, 6 months, and 9 months...

Home dialysis offers many advantages over in-center dialysis, but peritoneal dialysis and home hemodialysis are infrequently used. To better understand why, a survey of dialysis healthcare professionals (N = 273) in the United States was conducted to assess their knowledge, perceptions, and beliefs about home dialysis modalities. Most survey respondents demonstrated a lack of knowledge about home dialysis and perceived many barriers to home therapy, which may affect patient modality choice; however, 90% of respondents stated they would choose home dialysis for themselves if they required dialysis...

Huddles are a wonderful team-building tool to enhance team function and efficiency. The Institute of Medicine (2011) report, The Future of Nursing--Leading Change, Advancing Health, identifies the need for collaborative healthcare teams. This is based on 14 years of research and evidence. Creating a team culture is identified as being essential to delivering high-quality patient care. Huddles are easy to complete and don't cost anything but a few minutes that are well worth their while! It's not often we get an opportunity to do so much with so little...

In an attempt to create a standardized resource for cleansing both non-tunneled and tunneled hemodialysis catheters, it was discovered that all disinfectants are not compatible with all catheters. This article describes the process used to identify best practices for hemodialysis catheter care and steps taken to standardize practice throughout a hospital network. Standardized evidence-based practice preserves the integrity of catheters while allowing nurses to provide quality care to patients.

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Ann E Horigan, Julie V Barroso
This qualitative study describes the temporal patterns of fatigue found as part of a larger study designed to elicit a description of the experience and self-management of fatigue for patients on hemodialysis. Two patterns of fatigue were identified. The first pattern, continuous fatigue, was characterized by participants who experienced fatigue at all times, which was their normal, baseline feeling. Within this group, two subgroups were identified. The second pattern of fatigue, post-dialysis fatigue only, was characterized by participants who experienced fatigue only after their hemodialysis session...

Staff members, physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants from a sample of hemodialysis facilities in Network 6 (North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia) and Network 11 (Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin) completed a 10-item assessment with modified questions from the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture, with an emphasis on safety culture related to vascular access infections. A composite score was constructed, which was the average of the percent-positive scores of the items...

REVIEW
Theresa Honicker, Karyn Holt
Contrast medium is used daily for diagnostic and interventional procdures as a means to visualize blood vessels. The administration of contrast dye, however, can lead to an acute reduction in kidney function. This complication can impact length of hospital stay, risk of dialysis, and increased hospital mortality. Common preventative measures include N-acetylcysteine and intravenous hydration. The evidence reviewed revealed hydration to be the more effective treatment to reduce the risk of acute kidney injury...

Receipt of pre-end stage renal disease (ESRD) clinical care can improve outcomes for patients treated with maintenance hemodialysis (HD). This study addressed age-related variations in receipt of a composite of recommended care to include nephrologist and dietician care, and use of an arteriovenous fistula at first outpatient maintenance HD. Less than 2% of patients treated with maintenance HD received all three forms of pre-ESRD care, and 63.3% received none of the three elements of care. The mean number of pre-ESRD care elements received by the oldest group (80 years and older) did not differ from the youngest group (less than 55 years), but was less than the 55 to 66 and 67 to 79 years groups; adjusted ratios of 0...

Professional nephrology nurses are responsible for their ongoing education and competency in their area of practice. ANNA has an additional opportunity for education for nephrology nurses at the 47th National Symposium to be held May 1-4, 2016, in Louisville, Kentucky. The Janel Parker Memorial Opening Session keynote speaker for the meeting will be Suzanne Miyamoto, PhD, RN, Senior Director of Government Affairs and Health Policy with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. Her topic will be "Are We Practicing to the Fullest Extent? Licensure, Certification, and Education?" This session will help address educational competence in nephrology nursing...
