Article title: 'Lifting the cloud': patient-centred approaches to depression in renal patients
Author name(s): Dominic Bray, Alex Crowe and Joanne Iddon
Journal: British Journal of Renal Medicine
Issue: Summer 2011, Volume 16 Number 2
Pages: 27-30
Intro: It is something of a commonplace that people who are faced with a lifetime of ill health will, from time to time (if not in some cases habitually), become weighed down by the burden of their disease. Depression and anxiety are two to three times more common in those with a long-term physical illness, and approximately 25% of those with long-term conditions experience psychological distress and ill mental health. This co-morbidity increases healthcare use and, therefore, costs, as a quarter of patients admitted to hospital with a long-term physical illness also have a mental health condition.

Article title: What I tell my patients about benefits and entitlements
Author name(s): Mary Braybrooke
Journal: British Journal of Renal Medicine
Issue: Winter 2008, Volume 13 Number 4
Pages: 15-18
Intro: Most patients (or clients, as renal social workers tend to call them) are in a state of denial and disbelief when they are first diagnosed with chronic kidney disease; even more so, sometimes, when they are nearing the need for dialysis. Conflicting emotions, such as awareness of mortality, family pressures, insecurity and fear of changes in lifestyle make it difficult to take in all the implications. There is a need for repetition and reassurance and a gentleness as the news sinks in. If there is acute renal failure leading to a chronic condition with no preparation, this is even more difficult because of the immediate hospital treatment. For those who have time to consider and attend predialysis groups and meet members of the multidisciplinary team, the renal journey is possibly easier, although the implications remain the same.
