Abstract [en]

Background: Chronic kidney disease is predominantly an age-related condition that, if uremia occures requires dialysis treatment or kidney transplantation for survival. The treatment recommendations include restrictions on diet and fluid intake that affect both the lives of patients and their dependents. The change involves new learning, and in this the nurse plays an important role in addressing and responding to problems that patients and family care workers meet in their daily lives. Object: To describe the patient’s experiences of living with policlinic hemodialysis when suffering from chronic renal insufficiency. Method: A systematic literature study with descriptive synthesis. Analysis in accordance with Evan (2002). Outcome: The patients describe experiences of bodily, mental, social and spiritual stress. They describe increased dependence of their family and a feeling of being a burden. The hemodialysis unit is seen as a new social arena where there is the possibility of social interaction with nurses and other patients. Patients express the importance of trust and confidence in the nurses working there. Patients also want to have simple and straightforward answers to their questions. Conclusion: Patients with chronic kidney disease and polyclinic hemodialysis wished to be more involved in their treatment and wanted increased emotional support. Relatives and co-patients have an impact on the patient's perceived health.
