How can the configuration of dialysis centres encourage shared care?

Ian Davison, Sandra Cooke, Robin Gutteridge

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Based on the responses of 74 interviews from 7 dialysis centres, Ian Davison, Sandra Cooke and Robin Gutteridge argue that shared care shouldn't just be seen as a stepping-stone to home haemodialysis. Reasons for this include increased job satisfaction of nursing staff and ultimately more patients dialysing at home. Six organisational recommendations are made to promote vibrant shared care environments.
