Patient-centred Renal Care – A Multidisciplinary Approach to Holistic Health

Welcome to the Anaemia Project page!

The aims of the Anaemia Project Group are:

  • To promote a greater understanding of anaemia amongst renal care professionals
  • To promote the active management of renal anaemia by nurses
  • To promote a sharing of standards of care within Europe to improve patient care
  • To collaborate in research and education projects

Current project:

1. To co-ordinate and lead a survey regarding intravenous iron utilisation across 5 European countries.
This project will be starting in the next few weeks and forty nurses from each country will be approached to fill in an on-line questionnaire. The aim of this work is to identify how different countries administer intravenous iron to their patients. This work will be a joint venture between the EDTNA/ERCA and the Anaemia Nurse Specialist Association (ANSA) who will distribute the survey amongst nurses working within the UK

2. The Anaemia Consultant is also working with the Pre-Dialysis Consultant to edit a book  on End Of Life Care. One of the chapters is dedicated to discuss the management of anaemia in those patients who have chosen not to dialyse. The book is to be launched at the Annual Conference in Slovenia in 2011. A workshop discussing End Of Life Care at the same conference is being finalised at the time of this report.
