Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • exit-site infection [ Time Frame: 48 moths ]
  • technique survival [ Time Frame: 48 moths ]
  • total survival [ Time Frame: 48 moths ]

Estimated Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: January 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: operation inspection Behavioral: operation inspection

Retraining via operation inspection means that nurses check if patients can follow the taught skill during the procedure of bag exchange and correct wrong steps in one-to-one way every 2 months.

Retraining via verbal education means that nurses remind patients of key points of bag exchange through interactive quiz derived from above checklist every 2 months till 24 months

Experimental: verbal education Behavioral: operation inspection

Retraining via operation inspection means that nurses check if patients can follow the taught skill during the procedure of bag exchange and correct wrong steps in one-to-one way every 2 months.

Retraining via verbal education means that nurses remind patients of key points of bag exchange through interactive quiz derived from above checklist every 2 months till 24 months

Experimental: usual care Behavioral: operation inspection

Retraining via operation inspection means that nurses check if patients can follow the taught skill during the procedure of bag exchange and correct wrong steps in one-to-one way every 2 months.

Retraining via verbal education means that nurses remind patients of key points of bag exchange through interactive quiz derived from above checklist every 2 months till 24 months


Detailed Description:

The design is prospective, randomized, controlled study. At baseline (during the first month), they will receive a standard training program on performing bag exchange and education on the prevention of peritonitis.

Then the participants will be randomized into three groups: retraining via operation inspection (G1), retraining via verbal education (G2) and usual care (G3). Retraining will be performed every 2 months in G1 and G2 group.

During the following 2 years or a longer period, all the participants will be followed up frequently with outcome events recorded.
