Dutch Kidney Foundation grant
Prof. dr. Andrea Evers and dr. Henriet van
Middendorp have received a grant from the Dutch
Kidney Foundation to study the effects of a
eHealth self-management program.
Based on the most important adjustment problems of dialysis patients, Andrea and her team previously developed an online screening profile instrument and an eHealth self-management treatment. The screening and treatment tools are adapted to the specific problems and characteristics of the patient with dialysis.
With this grant Andrea and her team will evaluate the effectiveness of this E-health self-management approach in dialysis patients. She expects that the online screening and treatment will decrease the impact of the condition on daily life and contribute to a better quality of life for this group of kidney patients.
