Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Some nurses who care for renal patients feel that they are caught between the patient, their family and the physician. In May 2006 an evidenced-based practice workshop sponsored by the Research/Innovations committee at St. Joseph's Hospital in Syracuse, NY, using the Iowa model of evidenced -based practice, formed teams to identify pertinent research questions. This workshop prompted the nurses on the renal unit and acute kidney unit to ask, "how can we assist our end-stage renal disease patients with end-of-life issues?" Our focus for this project is the renal patient undergoing hemodialysis. First, using several databases (Cochrane, CINAHL, with evidenced-based filters and MEDLINE) evidence was sought on support groups and patient education. Secondly, the American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA) has developed a module that addressed the renal patient and end-of-life issues. Included are evidenced-based guidelines. Explained in the module is how and when to talk to a renal patient about end-of-life issues. The project team reviewed the module. With this project the CNS is in a unique position to effect two spheres of influence (the patient and nursing), by first educating the nursing staff and physicians, and then initiating a pilot project using the ANNA guidelines to educate the hemodialysis patient in the outpatient setting. Nurses, who are on the front lines caring for the end-stage renal disease patient, are better able to prepare patients for the issues they face at this difficult time.
