Abstract:

Rising Stars of Scholarship Invited Poster.

Background: People undergoing haemodialysis are required to follow a complex treatment regime that includes dietary and fluid restrictions. Fluid restrictions are reported to be the most difficult component of self-management for people with end stage kidney disease. Historically, research into interdialytic weight gain, a marker for fluid restriction adherence, has focused on interventions devised by clinicians and utilised quantitative methodologies with little consideration being given to how people deal personally with fluid restrictions.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to examine perspectives of managing interdialytic weight gain and describe the meaning of fluid restriction for people on haemodialysis. 

Method: This study used an exploratory descriptive design utilising in-depth interviews to explore the experiences of seven people on haemodialysis. Participants were invited to use images to support their story telling. Data were analysed using an iterative process to identify emergent themes.

Results: Themes identified were magnitude of loss, constant struggle and transition to acceptance. Transition to acceptance was not a linear progression to understanding and compliance but a multifaceted, tortuous struggle unique to individuals and largely dependent upon support, belief in a life worth living and willingness to engage in surveillance and maintenance behaviours in the areas of fluid management.

Conclusion: Appreciating the impact and meaning of fluid restriction for people on haemodialysis will assist health professionals to identify support strategies that facilitate healthy fluid gain behaviours.
