PEREZ-DOMINGUEZ, Borja  and  CASANA-GRANELL, José. Niveles de adherencia en una intervención de ejercicio guiada por enfermería en pacientes en diálisis. Rev. nefrol. dial. traspl. [online]. 2021, vol.41, n.3, pp.166-172. ISSN 2346-8548.

Introduction: There are still several barriers against establishing exercise routines in regular dialysis treatments despite their well-known benefits. Developing cost-effective strategies is necessary to overcome these barriers and include exercise as a complement to dialysis treatment. Nurses play a central role in these units; therefore, examining adherence may be interesting to make exercise implementation easier. Methods: 71 subjects were randomized either into an intradialytic or a home exercise program. They did exercise for 16 weeks. Nurses ran the intradialytic exercise program and the home exercise program was autonomous. The total number of sessions carried out was recorded in order to obtain the levels of adherence to the exercise. Results: In the intradialytic exercise group, 25% of participants showed low adherence; 50% had medium adherence, and 25%, high adherence. In the home group, 49% showed low adherence; 9% exhibited medium adherence, and 42%, high adherence. Conclusions: There are higher levels of adherence in the intradialytic group when compared to the home group, but the levels of high adherence were more significant in the home group, showing a greater impact in those with low adherence.
