#1. What is your broad topic?
Does clinical effectiveness and safety place a part in ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease)?
#2. What is your narrow topic?
Is the clinical effectiveness and safety of home HD or PD better than in-center HD for the treatment of ESRD?
#3. What is your answer to your research question? In other words, what do you propose?
I propose that clinical effectiveness and safety of the in-center treatment is better than home HD or PD clinical effectiveness and safety. There is not nearly as much research and study on home dialysis as it is in-center. When being in-center for dialysis you have more support and education than being at home. Being in-center for dialysis you have trained professional staff at your side for everything you need during your entire treatment vs being at home. I also propose that clinical effectiveness and safety has a huge impact on a patient’s outcomes and decisions that make. When you have all the support and materials needed to be successful on dialysis you will do much better and have a greater chance of being successful on dialysis. Last but not lease I propose that the right dialysis modality will help someone in the longer run.
