Nephrology Nursing aims to work in partnership with people who have renal disease to optimize their health and that of their families and communities. Renal disease is a chronic illness often irreversible condition arising from many causes, and frequently progresses to end-stage renal disease that requires dialysis or transplantation to sustain life. Renal disease impacts all body systems and, combined with the treatment, affects the person's diet, energy level, self-image, ability to work and overall lifestyle. It also affects family members as their income and roles may also change.
