ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04143100

Brief Summary:

Anxiety has been identified as a prevalent and significant co-morbid condition in patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) being treated with hemodialysis. In particular, anxious sensitivity to symptoms commonly experienced by dialysis patients may lead patients to prematurely terminate their dialysis sessions and may have consequences on their dialysis adequacy and overall quality of life.

The proposed study will examine the relationships between anxiety, depression, quality of life, symptom burden and dialysis prescription adherence. The primary regression analyses will be used to predict the influence of anxiety and depression (independently and together) on measures of adherence behaviors.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Anxiety ESRD Other: Survey

Detailed Description:
Additional analyses will examine the relationship of elevated anxiety and depression scores on symptom burden, QOL, and other measures of dialysis adherence. Retrospective data of the preceding three months will be used to calculate measures of dialysis adherence (shortening and skipping) and clinical parameters.

Intervention Details:
  • Other: Survey
    For our primary analysis (multiple regression) scores on the GAD-7, BAI and PHQ-9 will be used to predict dialysis adherence, as defined as minutes reduced (total dialysis prescribed -total actual time on machine) while controlling for age and gender.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7) [ Time Frame: This is a cross-sectional study, with anxiety scores being correlated with previous 6 months of adherence data ]
    Anxiety measure - higher scores indicate more anxiety
