Intradialytic Massage for Leg Cramps Among Hemodialysis Patients: a Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial [Research Perch]

Posted:Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Listen in as we discuss “Intradialytic Massage for Leg Cramps Among Hemodialysis Patients: a Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial.”

Dr. Jerrilyn Cambron and Ruth Werner walk us through the implications, how it can grow our practices, and how it can help us serve our clients better.

 

Review what you have learned from the video with these questions:
1. There are several exclusion criteria in this study. Are they absolute contraindications for massage treatment? Or do you think they were they exclusions for the sake of patient uniformity in this study?
2. What kind of extra training would you want to have before you started doing massage in a dialysis unit, if any?
