AGUILERA FLOREZ, Ana Isabel; LINARES FANO, Blanca; ALONSO ROJO, Ana Cristina  y  PRIETO VELASCO, Mario. Analysis of the impact of personal values in the choice of Renal Replacement Therapy. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.3, pp.209-214. ISSN 2255-3517.

One of the activities carried out in the educational process with decision support tools (HATD) is to help patients explore their values through "value cards".

The aim of the study was to know the personal values of Chronic Kidney Disease patients in the choice of Renal Replacement Treatment modality and to analyze if there was a relationship between the messages of the cards and the modality of treatment.

Retrospective study. We included 281 patients who went through the education process with HATD between the years 2011-2016. Data were obtained from nursing records in the medical history. Demographic variables, stock cards and treatment choice were studied.

The sample was 281 patients. The three cards that obtained a higher percentage of selection were: health personnel responsible for treatment (14.20%), independent (13.65%) and impact for the family (13.30%). According to the modality of treatment chosen, for hemodialysis patients were: impact for the family (15.94%), health personnel responsible for treatment (15.58%) and independent (13.04%); while for peritoneal dialysis patients, they were: independent (18.95%), health personnel responsible for treatment (15.26%) and impact for the family (14.21%). For those with conservative medical treatment, they were: independent (25.2%), autonomy and impact for the family (12.5%); and for those with live donor transplantation: health personnel responsible for treatment (30%), independent (30%) and autonomy (10%).

We can conclude that most of the messages on the cards appear to be in accordance with the modality of treatment. There are no values of a modality of renal replacement therapy, but people with different values that influence in the decision making.
