Evaluation of information for renal insufficiency patients before dialysis

Evaluation of information for renal insufficiency patients before dialysis

Nephrologie 19(3): 111-116

The aim of this audit was to assess the quality of information given to patients before dialysis and to improve the use of this information on the acceptability of the treatment. Methods were those used in medical audit: retrospective data collection in a sample of patients, comparison to a set of standards given by professionals and recommendations disseminated in the group of professionals. Results showed that patients received a partial information on the various techniques used in dialysis. More complete information is needed. Recommendations consisted in a specialised team giving a detailed information on the disease and the techniques used in dialysis, with a psychological assistance. After implementation of this team, re-assessment showed a consistent benefit of structured information and entailed the necessity to improve the process of information delivery by general practitioners and specialists.
