Overview

Most people living with end stage kidney disease require dialysis to maintain life. Many attend dialysis treatment three times per week in community-based (also known as satellite), nurse-run haemodialysis centres. This book describes a study that explored nurses' perceptions of quality in these dialysis centres was undertaken. Findings revealed that nurses considered technical knowledge, technical skills and personal respect as characteristics of quality. Major factors influencing and determining quality dialysis nursing care were considered to be 'the person receiving dialysis treatment', 'management', 'nurse' and 'environment'. Recommendations in this book offer new knowledge about quality nursing in satellite haemodialysis units, enabling nurses to critically reflect on, and improve, the quality of care they provide. This book would be valuable for experienced renal clinicians, managers, educators and researchers.
