The purpose of this study is to determine adult hemodialysis patients' perceptions concerning their choice among the three main renal replacement therapies: transplantation, hemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis. Subjects: Participants for this study will consist of patients who undergo hemodialysis therapy in a southern metropolitan city. Convenience sampling will be used by choosing two dialysis centers and informants that would maximize opportunities to verify the patient information. The participant number will be between 7-12 participants. Sample recruitment will be discontinued when data saturation is achieved. Research Design: This study will be an exploratory, descriptive study using a phenomenological approach to describe the experience of adult hemodialysis patients' perceptions concerning choice among renal replacement therapies. Qualitative data will be collected utilizing an open-ended interview technique. The research design will include the use of bracketing, intuiting, and identifying essences throughout the study. Anticipated Method of Analysis: The data will be analyzed using qualitative techniques. Data analysis will commence when data collection begins. The researcher will separate beliefs and assumptions from the raw data and this will occur through the investigation. The researcher will write down any ideas, feelings, or responses that emerge during data collection and support reductive phenomenology. The researcher's own experience will be considered data and examined within the context of the study for the part it plays in the study results. As each interview is conducted, the researcher will carefully listen to discover meanings. Data, from the transcribed interviews, will be analyzed using Colaizzi's framework for phenomenological analysis. During this time period of analysis, the researcher will question all prior conclusions in light of what has been discovered in the context of the whole study. Through the explication of themes, the discovery of the meanings of the participants' perceptions will be obtained.
