Main Article Content
This qualitative research aimed to explore treatment decision-making process with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis of patients with end-stage kidney disease at Phayao Hospital. Data were collected by in-depth interviews from 15 patients with end-stage kidney failure. Data were analyzed by using content analysis method. The results of the study showed that the treatment decision-making process of participants consisted of two main issues: 1) seeking information about treatment methods including both the pros and cons of each treatment and the support from families and society; and 2) considering loss of income, time spent on patients’ care, and financial condition of families, as well as patient’s physical condition, age, occupation and education. Therefore, nurses who provide counseling to these patients should prepare information about the continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis to educate patients adjusted to their needs. Patient’s family members should be included in the decision-making process so that it will be more efficient in providing the best care.
