Chronic kidney disease (CKD) educational sessions, whether part of a multidisciplinary plan of care or separate entities, have been increasingly utilized over the last 20 years. Although literature reviews exist in which randomized controlled studies concerning CKD educational sessions are addressed, none of the studies reviewed specifically addressed the low attendance rates of CKD educational sessions. The purpose of this research was to describe current and recommended CKD (predialysis) educational interventions and outcomes in controlled and multidisciplinary studies, examine documented issues related to attendance, and determine barriers and facilitators that affect attendance at educational sessions for CKD patients.
