About

The goal of this pilot clinical trial is to evaluate a culturally tailored computerized education program in hospitalized African-American patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). The main question it aims to answer are: does computerized adaptive education (CAE) increase patients' knowledge about CKD self-care and renal replacement therapy (RRT) options compared to usual care (UC) and will CAE will be increase patients' intent to participate in CKD self-care and RRT preparation compared to UC

Full description

The goal of this pilot clinical trial is to evaluate a culturally tailored adaptive computerized education program in hospitalized African-American patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). The investigator's first hypothesis is that computerized adaptive education (CAE) will be more effective than standard of care in improving knowledge about self-care for advanced CKD and renal replacement therapy (RRT) options (Primary Outcome). The primary outcome is knowledge about CKD and knowledge about RRT. The study team will measure this using the Kidney Disease Knowledge Survey (KiKs). The investigator's second hypothesis is that CAE will increase patients' intent to participate in CKD self-care (to take diabetes and/or hypertension meds, see a nephrologist, and make additional lifestyle changes like smoking cessation, exercise, low-salt diet) compared to standard of care. The study team will measure this using an investigator-developed Health Intent Survey and measure patient activation through the Patient Activation Measure (PAM). Similarly, the investigator hypothesizes that CAE will increase patients' intent to obtain non-catheter access prior to dialysis initiation, to initiate self-care dialysis (peritoneal (PD) or home hemodialysis (HHD), and/or have transplant evaluation compared to standard of care. The study team will measure this using an investigator-developed Health Intent Survey. The investigator's final hypothesis is that CAE will increase patients' action at 30 days post-discharge in participating in CKD self-care and CKD health-seeking behavior compared to standard of care controls.

120 participants in 2 patient groups

Usual Care
Active Comparator group
Description:
The research assistant (RA) will use tablet to give participants baseline General Health Knowledge and Intent survey and leave printed patient education materials about general health maintenance. In the initial consent, pre-intervention survey and education materials, investigators will not provide CKD specific knowledge or inform participants about their CKD.
Treatment:
Behavioral: Usual Hospital Care
Computerized Patient Education
Experimental group
Description:
The RA will assist participants in starting the computer program and encourage review of the advanced CKD education module. The computer-adaptive education module will alter the content of education topics based on some preliminary participant information.
Treatment:
Behavioral: Computerized CKD Education
