Abstract

Although clinical guidelines exist for optimal levels of serum markers of chronic kidney disease mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD), target parameters are not achieved in many haemodialysis (HD) patients. The reason for this evidence-practice gap is unclear and more information from patients and healthcare professionals is required to improve knowledge transfer. We aimed to determine potential barriers by surveying HD patients and staff about awareness and management of CKD-MBD.
