ALDANA, Erika Alexandra et al. Competition for the care (CARE) at the home of people with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2016, vol.19, n.3, pp.265-273. ISSN 2255-3517.

Objective: To describe the competition for home care (CARE) for persons with chronic disease on hemodialysis. Materials and Methods: Quantitative, descriptive, prospective and cross-sectional study conducted between 2014 and 2015. The sample consisted of 131 hemodialysis patients attending to a renal therapy center in Bogotá city. The instruments used were: "Characterization Survey to Define the Care of a Person with Chronic Disease" and "Competition for care at home GCPF-UN-CPC, patient version". Descriptive statistics was used to analyze the competition for care at home and their dimensions from stratification levels (high, medium and low). Results: People with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis have low and medium levels of competence to care at home. The dimensions of "uniqueness" and "enjoy" report the lowest levels, in contrast, the components of relationship and social interaction are among the highest levels. Conclusions: The competence for care at home for people in home hemodialysis is in unequal levels which can affect the continuity and security. That competence must be strengthened, in each of its components as a specific benefit in promoting health in this group of people.
