The Journal of Renal Care is an international peer-reviewed journal for the multi-professional health care team caring for people with kidney disease and those who research this specialised area of health care. Kidney disease is a chronic illness with four basic treatments: haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis conservative management and transplantation, which includes emptive transplantation, living donor & cadavaric transplantation. The continuous world-wide increase of people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) means that research and shared knowledge into the causes and treatment is vital to delay the progression of CKD and to improve treatments and the care given. The focus of the Journal of Renal Care is to integrate theory and practice in the care of people with CKD and their families. It seeks to report research into CKD and advance evidence based practice. The Journal of Renal Care publishes original research articles, literature reviews, case reports, case studies, policy reports, letters to the Editor, book reviews, and analyses and descriptions of professional practice initiatives in CKD and associated topics. It seeks to promote content that is relevant to and reflective of the growing diversity of the renal community. The journal also supports the publication of local issues, when these are of international interest.
