This trial is evaluating whether Motivational interviewing will improve 1 primary outcome and 5 secondary outcomes in patients with Kidney Failure, Chronic. Measurement will happen over the course of Baseline, Week 6, Week 10.
This trial requires 30 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. Motivational Interviewing is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"For patients with chronic kidney failure, the goal should be to keep their GFR as low as possible while minimizing toxicity. Current best practice is to use ACE inhibitor/ARB combination with a spironolactone and eplerenone as a second-line agent." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Given the frequency and consequences of kidney failure, common treatments are plentiful and multifactorial. Common treatments include medications and dialysis, where dialysis may be lifesaving long-term therapy for a majority of patients, and hemodialysis, which may be indicated for patients with advanced kidney failure despite optimal therapy. Common treatments for anemia and hypothyroidism, chronic kidney disease, and the nephrostomy placement include medications, fluid optimization and dialysis. While patients may benefit from multiple strategies, nephrostomy placement is the most efficacious in long-term treatment for chronic kidney Disease, anemia, and hypothyroidism refractory to the other interventions." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Recent findings shows that in all age groups there are greater rates of kidney failure than the number of people with heart failure. This means that kidney failure is happening more often than heart failure each year in America. In men, kidney failure was about 3.7 times higher than the number of people with chronic heart failure. In women, kidney failure was almost twice as frequent.(ABSTRACT TRANSPLANT, J NURSEN, F DEGROEP, et al., "

"There is a great deal of variability in the definition of chronic kidney disease. However, even a large range of definitions show that chronic kidney disease affects a considerable number of adults. The cause of kidney failure, chronic kidney disease and chronic kidney disease-specific morbidity and mortality all vary widely by definition. The impact of chronic kidney disease on morbidity and mortality can be significant. There is great variation between studies in both the prevalence and cause of this multi-factorial disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"A number of signs of kidney failure relate to the underlying disease state. These include: weight gain, edema, raised BP, increased protein excretion, oliguria and an increased serum creatinine level with increased excretion of albumin or uromodulin. The clinical presentation and diagnosis will vary depending on the underlying cause. For the most part the clinical presentation resembles that of chronic kidney disease. The most commonly used tests used to exclude CKD are inadequate to do this. In summary, there are a number of common clinical signs of kidney failure, which are most easily recognized by most general clinicians." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"An increased number of patients at risk are being identified as a result of improved screening. These patients are typically more ill and live progressively shorter lives, requiring longer hospital stays and greater health system expenditures. However, a number of clinical and demographic features are predicting the high morbidity and mortality and resource utilization of kidney failure, chronic. A focus on those specific clinical and demographic variables are required to effectively treat patients with organ failure at risk who require lifelong care." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The use of motivational interviewing did not promote self-efficacy; however, it promoted the participants' understanding of the disease and its treatment, in addition to their general disease beliefs and beliefs regarding the utility of the treatment. Hence, the use of this technique could have potentially improved treatment adherence." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Chronic kidney disease resulted from a combination of factors: aging, nondigestive disease, cardiovascular causes, and a growing population prone to nonrenal causes. The most common cause of chronic kidney disease in this population was cardiovascular disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"M-I may be an effective intervention to increase exercise uptake in persons with chronic kidney disease and may assist in reducing distress during the transition to dialysis. Data from a recent study underscore the feasibility of using motivational interviewing strategies." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Improving patients' motivation for change improved patients' quality of life, but did not decrease it, suggesting that interventions that are currently used for this population would be most effective if used in combination." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The MIST is a valuable and useful tool in the treatment of patients with chronic kidney disease. MIST has a unique and beneficial method of improving motivation for treatment, increasing patient's awareness of their disease state and influencing patients to take up their medication. The use of MIST may further improve treatment adherence." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There are many recent advances in treating chronic kidney failure and more research must be done. However, it still remains difficult for research to come up with treatments for the disease because the causes of the disease are still not well known. A new type of immunotherapy called [nivolumab] might help some patients with chronic kidney failure, but [nivolumab] is not FDA approved for [kidney failure] patients. Additionally, [nivolumab]'s FDA"
