Dialysis is a burdensome and difficult treatment path that is increasingly offered to older patients with end-stage renal disease. Outcomes are variable, and many times patients experience a wide array of symptoms that limit their participation in, and satisfaction with day to day life. Using a palliative approach to care prioritizes symptoms associated with both the disease and the treatment over laboratory or measurement targets while still striving for quality care. Strategies for the management of symptoms such as pain, pruritus, wellbeing and strength will be discussed together with the results from a clinical program aimed at improving the wellbeing of elders with advanced kidney disease.
