ANGEL ANGEL, Zahira Esperanza; DUQUE CASTANO, Germán Alberto  and  TOVAR CORTES, David Leonardo. Nursing care plans for chronic kidney disease patients in hemodialysis: a systematic review. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2016, vol.19, n.3, pp.202-213. ISSN 2255-3517.

Introduction: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is considered a current public health problem worldwide due to its prevalence and growing incidence in the population, its relative importance in the health burden of our country, its permanent chronic behavior, its lethal potential and its impact on the patient, family and nations. Therefore requires a comprehensive care based on good clinical practice based on evidence. Method: A systematic scientific literature review of the articles published between 2004 and 2014, done in Spanish, Portuguese and English, and available in full text. A thorough search for original works in databases such as Cuiden Plus, CINAHL, SciELO, Lilacs, PubMed, and Nursing Ovid. A critical assessment of the scientific quality of the studies, applying the CASPe research grids, and the STROBE checklist. Findings: The themes that came out as a result of the articles analysis were: Perspective on Nursing models and theories for caring patients in hemodialysis; Common nursing language and nursing care process; Nursing diagnosis for the patient in hemodialysis; Education for the patient in hemodialysis; Self-care for the patient in hemodialysis; Family's important role when caring for a patient; Patient satisfaction as a quality objective. Conclusions: Nursing models, theories and taxonomy allow a broader, deeper and comprehensive view of nursing that eases the path to excellence in patient care.
