AbstractBackground: End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) is one of the commonest diseases in Hong Kong. Patient with ESRD needs to start dialysis for life maintenance. Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is the predominant dialysis modality for home dialysis patients. More than 80% of dialysis patients in Hong Kong receive PD. However, it also brings out some PD-related infectious complication such as tenckhoff exit-site infection, tenckhoff tunnel infection and PD peritonitis. These complications markedly contribute to treatment failure in PD patients. Especially PD peritonitis, it remains a leading complication of PD. Also it is a main cause of patients switch to haemodialysis (HD)and discontinue PD. Nevertheless, if the primary prevention of PD education do better, research evidences have shown that peritonitis infection rate of PD patients can be effectively reduced. It can be achieve by the utilization of effective education strategies and advanced training skills to enhance patients’ knowledge and skills of peritoneal dialysis. Purpose: This written proposal aims to identify the best evidence of PD education and to develop a guideline for this health education programme. The goal of the programme is to reduce the rate of PD-related infection for patients who started PD treatment at home after first CAPD training and education. Method: A total of 12 studies which focused on PD education and strategies for reducing PD-related infections were searched from electronic databases. Data extraction and critical appraisal were performed on these 12 studies. After the integrative review, the implementation potential was assessed. The results shown that the transferability of finding is high and it is feasible to conduct the proposed innovation. Then, the evidence-based guideline for PD education programme were developed and based on the high and medium level of evidence with grades of recommendation stated. Before implementing the proposed innovation, a communication plan was developed and targeted the various stakeholders (the administrators, nurses, patients and their relatives). The proposer would initiate the change and the programme leading group would guide and sustain the proposed innovation. The next process was planning a pilot study to examine the feasibility of the proposed innovation before implementation. Finally, different outcomes of the programme has been identified and evaluated in the evaluation plan. The methods for data analysis were formulated. Conclusion: The proposed peritoneal dialysis education programme with best evidences support is worthy to be adopted in the clinical setting for the beneficial of PD patients to reduce their PD-related infectious complications.
