Long-term management with phosphate binders in chronic kidney disease: Patient satisfaction levels with information received from their healthcare professional

Michelle Foley, Raji Susan, Linda Sheahan

Abstract
Background: Phosphate binding medications (PBM) are commonly used in the management of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nurses caring for patients in the renal dialysis unit are primarily responsible for educating patients on action and usage of PBMs. Methods: Information was collected using two validated scales; The Satisfaction with Information about Medicine Scale and beliefs about medicines scale, from 41 renal dialysis patients using PBM for more than 6 months at a regional renal dialysis unit in 2012. Results: The results of this study show a high proportion of patients are not fully satisfied with the information they receive on their PBMs. 36% (n = 15) had total scores that fell below the total satisfaction score midpoint (<8). The relationship between satisfaction with information and concerns of taking PBM showed a medium negative correlation with higher levels of satisfaction with information on PBM associated with lower levels of concern about PBM use. Conclusion: Further research should identify the level and type of information needed to ensure patients are fully satisfied
