Abstract

The quality of nurse-patient interaction is one factor that affects patients’ adherence. However, a study providing an overview of factors in nurse-patient interaction for improving or maintaining dialysis adherence in patients has not been found. The aim of this study was to provide an overview of the various factors of the interaction between nurses and patients undergoing dialysis, in adherence with fluid and dietary restrictions. A qualitative research design with an interpretive phenomenology approach was used in this study. The unit of analysis used was the disclosure or exposure of external factors from the nurse-patient interaction process, especially in fluid and dietary restrictions. Fifteen participants were selected based on the following inclusion criteria (patients with a minimum age of 18 years, receiving similar dialysis therapy for at least 3 months, in stable medical condition [not currently in acute condition requiring immediate medical treatment], and not experiencing psychological problems). In-depth interviews accompanied by field notes were used in this study. Analysis of the themes based on the goal of the research included nurses’ behavior and social support. The results provide an overview of findings regarding nurse-patient interaction factors that can serve as baseline data for the development of care, both in nursing assessment and intervention, aimed at improving the adherence to dietary and fluid restrictions of dialysis patients.
