A randomized clinical trial for patients with end stage renal disease in which a family consultation condition is compared against a treatment as usual control condition on the hospital readmissions after 1 month as the primary outcome variable.

Study summary:

Patients hospitalized at Henry For Hospital who have end stage renal disease will complete baseline questionnaires and be randomized into the experimental or control condition. Patients randomized into the experimental condition will have a single family consultation session before the patient is discharged. A trained, master's level therapist will conduct the family consultation, which will use education, motivational interviewing, and other techniques to help the family engage and support the patient's health needs. Patients in both the experimental and control conditions will complete follow up questionnaires 1 month after discharge. Investigators will conduct chart reviews of outcome data, including readmissions, at 1, 3, and 6 months post-discharge.
