Abstract

Advance care planning is a process that engages healthcare providers and patients to articulate wishes of patients as their illness progresses. Persons with chronic kidney disease require earlier and more frequent advance care planning conversations because they are faced with increased co-morbidities and a shortened lifespan. This literature review explores the phenomenon of advance care planning and the potential factors affecting nephrology nurse engagement in these discussions.

Goal

To explore the literature about advance care planning from the nephrology nurse perspective.
