[Evidence-based Practice Session Presentation] Effects of a Telephone Follow-up Program in Patients with Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) Purpose: The objective of this study was to identify the effects of a telephone follow-up program on patient adherence, urea kinetic modeling and incidence of infection in patients with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Method: A pretest-posttest design with a nonequivalent control group was used to examine the effects of a telephone follow-up program for 12 weeks in a group of 39 patients with CAPD. The telephone follow-up group of 17 patients received telephone follow-up 10 minutes once a week for 1 month and 10 minutes twice a month for 2 months during 12 weeks compared to control group of 22 patients receiving usual care. Results: The telephone follow-up group showed no significant changes in patient adherence, urea kinetic modeling, although patients with CAPD receiving a telephone follow-up showed reduced incidence of exit site infection during the intervention compared with the control group. Conclusion: The findings of this study demonstrate that a telephone follow-up program for patients with CAPD may decrease the incidence of exit site infection in a positive direction and suggest that future studies with a larger sample be done utilizing diet and exercise reinforcement program combined with telephone follow-up as a nursing intervention for patients with CAPD. . Key words: Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD), Patient Compliance, Telephone
