Clinical Trial Summary

Hemodialysis (HD) is the most commonly used renal replacement therapy in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). More than 553,000 ESRD patients in China are currently receiving HD, but the long-term survival rate is low and the mortality rate is as high as 18%, which is significantly associated with low physical activity (PA). Low PA could decrease cardiopulmonary and muscle function, limit the ability to perform activities of daily living, and increase risk of death. The National Kidney Foundation Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (K/DOQI) recommends PA as cornerstone of ESRD rehabilitation. However, HD patients still live with inactive lifestyle. The investigators' previous study have demonstrated that enhancing PA benefits physical function in HD patients. Therefore, this study intends to establish Physical ACtivity Enhancement Scheme (PACES), that is, to take PACES (measured by pedometers) as the investigation core and motivate patients to PACES. This study will consists of three distinct parts: 1, 2 and 3. In Part 1, the investigators will conduct research on the PA of HD patients through pedometer and questionnaire, and understand the participants' attitude to PA through a series of questionnaires. In Part 2, the investigators will conduct a semi-structured interview to understand HD patients' attitudes and habits towards PA, as well as recommendations for PACES. In Part 3, the investigators will take the results of Part 1 and 2 as the initial draft of PACES and modify the initial draft through the Delphi method to form the final PACES. The study aims to develop PACES from the perspective of patients to address the above cognitive factors, making it easier for HD patients to enhance PA.
