Study summary

Not provided at time of registration

To achieve good serum phosphate control in haemodialysis patients compliance with a phosphate restricted diet and phosphate binder medication is important. The aim of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of different education methods including group teaching sessions and intensive phosphate clinics. We hope to find the best methods of educating people to achieve the desired levels.

Intervention Name :
Intervention Description : 68 patients will be recruited and randomised into 4 groups. Baseline data on their phosphate knowledge and routine blood chemistry will be obtained. Two groups will attend group education sessions run by the renal dietician and the renal pharmacist. The other two groups will act as controls. At the end of this phase the phosphate questionnaire will be repeated and blood will be taken for analysis. The patients will then complete a 1 month wash-out phase. At the end of this they will repeat the questionnaire and have blood taken. Two groups will attend monthly intensive phosphate clinics for a 4 month period. The other two groups will act as controls. The questionnaire and blood test will be repeated at the end of this phase which is also the end of the study.
