Abstract

DIALYSIS: THE DEMAND FOR PRINTED PATIENT INFORMATION MATERIALS ON THE HEALTH LITERACY OF CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE (CKD) PATIENTS

*Jibin K. Joy, Bincy T. Abraham, Dr. K. Krishnakumar, Lincy George, Amala Boban

ABSTRACT

Haemodialysis is an awkward and treacherous process requiring high attention of both patients and attendants. It will be worthwhile when we assess the medication knowledge of such patients and providing them with pertinent medication related information. Ideally designed patient information materials can augment other educational guidance and also ameliorate patient care. Much of the health care providers communicate with their patients verbally. But this may bring about misapprehend and overlook in patients. There is a superlative need for patients to get informed with their disease, medication, lifestyle, nutritional changes. It is paramount to determine the readability of patient information materials and the hindrance in providing patient education are to be removed.

Keywords: Chronic kidney disease (CKD), Haemodialysis, Patient education, Patient information materials, Self governance.
