abstract

  • Renal HCPs are often unaware of the magnitude of symptom burden in their HD patients. This study found that there is lack of ownership for assessing and treating these symptoms. Providers also feel certain symptoms are "untreatable." Research is needed to develop effective treatment strategies for HD populations.
