Assessment of methodological quality conducted by independent peers using the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme, in Spanish; 3. Summary of qualitative evidence, which is interrelated with the taxonomies Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and classification, and Nursing Intervention Classification. Results: The research paper is based on 19 studies that, using the voice of research subjects reported by the authors and approved with the defining characteristics, allowed the formulation of diagnoses and the determination of the necessary nursing interventions framed in the 13 domains established by the Nursing Diagnoses: definitions and classification. Some of the results and conclusions themselves are qualitative evidence of the care required by people on peritoneal dialysis.
