REVIEW
Andrea Dombrowski, Roschelle Heuberger
BACKGROUND: Patients receiving dialysis are thought to have increased energy needs due to stress from the dialysis process or uraemic toxins. However, certain conditions may induce hypometabolic states potentially leading to unwanted weight gains when increased calorie intake is recommended. OBJECTIVES: Since there is conflicting research, this study aims to assess total energy expenditure (TEE) of patients receiving dialysis through analysis of resting energy expenditure (REE) and physical activity levels...

BACKGROUND: Management of individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) requires a collaborative approach. Nurses have diversified their skills to take on roles which have been traditionally physician-led. The impact of such roles, mainly that of the advanced nurse practitioner (ANP), has not been previously assessed using a systematic approach. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this systematic review (SR) was to determine the impact of the addition of an ANP on patient outcomes in adults with CKD...

REVIEW
Priscilla Muscat, Joseph Chilcot, John Weinman, Joanna Hudson
BACKGROUND: The prevalence of depression is found to increase from early stages to later stages of chronic kidney disease. Research on illness perceptions in patients undergoing dialysis has confirmed that patients' beliefs are associated with important outcomes; one of the most significant being depression. However, the association between illness perceptions and depression in patients in pre-dialysis care remains unclear. OBJECTIVE: The main objective of this systematic review was to explore the associative relationship between illness perceptions and depression in patients with CKD prior to the commencement of dialysis...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a range of symptoms, even at early stages. The importance of patient symptom experience is increasingly recognised, but validated symptom scores are lacking. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to refine an existing symptom questionnaire for use with patients not requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT), carry out content validity testing and explore convergent validity by comparing symptom scores with quality of life (QoL)...

BACKGROUND: There is increasing recognition of the clinical need for timely and coordinated supportive and palliative care for those with terminal organ failure. OBJECTIVE: To describe symptoms, quality of life and supportive care needs in the anticipated 12-month period prior to death in adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 4 or 5. METHOD: An observational, prospective, longitudinal design was used to follow 19 patients. The measures used were the Chronic Kidney Disease-Symptom Burden Index (CKD-SBI), the Australian Karnofsky Performance Scale (AKPS), the Functional Assessment of Chronic illness Therapy Palliative-14 (FACIT PAL-14), the Assessment of Quality of Life 6 Dimensions (AQoL-6D) and the Sheffield Profile for Assessment and Referral for Care (SPARC)...

REVIEW
Van Lan Hoang, Theresa Green, Ann Bonner
BACKGROUND: Living with end stage kidney disease and having dialysis is burdensome, and there is a need for support from informal caregivers (i.e. family members and friends). Renal health professionals readily acknowledge and value the support provided by caregivers although the activities and experiences of caring for a loved-one who is receiving dialysis is less well understood. OBJECTIVES: To review studies about the perspectives and experiences of family members and friends who provide support for adults receiving either haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis...

BACKGROUND: The shortage of organs from deceased donors has led to more living donation. Furthermore, immunological developments have made it possible to perform kidney transplantation despite preformed antibodies against the donor organ. This has led to a broader recruitment base of living donors. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to investigate experiences and considerations on becoming, and during the process of being, a living kidney donor. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Interviews and participant observation were conducted before, during and after the donation...

BACKGROUND: The bowel health of those with chronic kidney disease (CKD) can be affected by medications, fluid/dietary allowances, reduced activity and pre-existing medical conditions. Patient perceptions of their bowel health can differ from those of health care professionals and the burden of gastrointestinal symptoms could be inaccurately reported. METHODS: Adults with CKD, including those undergoing haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplant from four South Australian hospitals enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Malnutrition is a significant problem in those undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD). Factors such as gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and the need for a fluid reduced diet can limit tolerance and thereby the efficacy of oral nutritional supplements to treat malnutrition. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the acceptability and impact of two different forms of oral nutrition supplementation for 16 weeks on nutritional markers and quality of life of malnourished patients undergoing PD...

BACKGROUND: Over-hydration (OH) and malnutrition are prevalent among patients on dialysis therapy. The prevalence of OH and malnutrition as well as the risk factors associated with OH and malnutrition in our patients on home peritoneal dialysis (PD) and home haemodialysis (HD) are examined. DESIGN AND METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study. The hydration and nutritional status of the study groups were assessed by a Body Composition Monitor. Patients who were stable on home dialysis therapy for over one year were invited to participate...

BACKGROUND: Evidence is inconclusive on how best to guide the patient in decision-making around haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis choice. International guidelines recommend involvement of the patient in the decision to choose the dialysis modality most suitable for the individual patient. Nevertheless, studies have shown lack of involvement of the patient in decision-making. OBJECTIVES: To develop and pilot test an intervention for shared decision-making targeting the choice of dialysis modality...

PURPOSE: Primary arteriovenous fistula arterio venous fistula (AVF) formation has proven to be the best and optimal vascular access for the majority of haemodialysis patients. At present there are limited data to suggest which haemodynamic parameters most correlate with the likelihood of early failure. The aim of this study is to identify the haemodynamic predictors of early failure, hence identify which fistulae may benefit from timely pre-emptive intervention. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of data was performed of 201 patients undergoing native AVF creation over a one year period...

BACKGROUND: Fifty to eighty percent of patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) experience a form of sexual dysfunction (SD), even after renal transplantation. Despite this, inquiring about SD is often not included in the daily practice of renal care providers. OBJECTIVES: This paper explores the perspectives of renal social workers regarding sexual care for patients and evaluates their practice, attitude towards responsibility and knowledge of SD. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study was conducted using a 41-item online survey...
