Review: multicomponent educational interventions improve some outcomes in predialysis and dialysis care

J L Mason

Ms J L Mason, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, Leicester, UK;


Are multicomponent educational interventions that include both informational and psychological components effective in patients with kidney disease?


Studies selected compared structured educational interventions (including both informational and psychological components) with usual care in patients >18 years of age who had kidney disease (early stage chronic kidney disease [CKD], predialysis, and dialysis care). Studies of patients with kidney transplants were excluded. Outcomes included time to dialysis (in predialysis care), survival, self-efficacy, diet and fluid concordance, depression, anxiety, and quality of life.
