Cluster analysis for family management of Chinese children with chronic kidney diseases

This study aimed to identify patterns of family management and its predictors based on the perception of the care experience from 339 caregivers of Chinese children with chronic kidney disease in multiple medical centers. Each caregiver completed the Family Management Measure questionnaires. Cluster analysis generated five patterns: effective (12.7%), impaired (14.5%), burdensome (21.2%), disorganized (27.7%), and concerning (23.9%). Multinomial logistic regression indicated that child's age, disease duration, family income, and paternal employment predicted cluster membership.

Using videoconsultations to deliver dietary advice to children with chronic kidney disease: a qualitative study of parent and child perspectives

Background: Children with chronic kidney disease require specialist renal paediatric dietetic care, regardless of disease severity or geographical location; however, underÔÇÉresourcing makes this challenging. Videoconsultation may offer a solution but research exploring its acceptability is limited. The present study explored parent/carer and child perspectives of videoconsultation as an alternative or supplement to existing regional dietetic care.
