Project Details


Women and men on kidney dialysis often suffer from symptoms of severe and overwhelming pain, tiredness, nausea, cramping, itching, trouble sleeping, depression and anxiety which contributes to a poor quality of life. The Symptom monitoring WIth Feedback Trial (SWIFT) pilot will test how easy it is to measure symptoms and quality of life every 3-6 months, using a tablet computer and feed this information back to the patients' dialysis nurse and kidney doctor. SWIFT aims to improve symptom burden, quality of life and survival by giving more attention to symptom management, and encouraging doctors to discuss symptoms with their patients.
