Adherence to Treatment by African Americans Undergoing Hemodialysis

Nephrology Nursing Journal

Daniels, G.B., Robinson, J.R. and Walker, C.A.

2018 End stage renal disease (ESRD) affects African Americans more than any other ethnic group. Adherence is a challenge. Patients with ESRD must adhere to medication, diet, fluid restrictions, and dialysis treatment schedules if they do not receive a kidney transplant. The purpose of this exploratory, descriptive study was to assess adherence in 120 African Americans with ESRD undergoing hemodialysis (HD). Participants completed a demographic questionnaire and the ESRD Adherence Questionnaire (ESRD-AQ). Biomarkers were collected from medical records. Few participants (24%) adhered to dietary restrictions; however, fluid restriction was reported as the most difficult to manage, which was consistent with the interdialytic weight gain biomarker. Older participants were more adherent. Participants were adherent with HD attendance and medication. Participants reported frequent communication with the healthcare team, but a more formal process needs to be implemented with follow up to ensure understanding and reinforce adherence.

Safe storage time for reprocessed flexible endoscopes: a systematic review

JBI Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports

2015 Flexible endoscopes are used to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal and pulmonary diseases. They have narrow, internal channels which are used to insert instruments, air and water into hollow organs and to remove tissues and secretions. Since endoscopes are contaminated during use and have heat sensitive components that cannot be sterilized, they are reprocessed with cleaning and high-level disinfection to destroy microorganisms.
