Description
The official publication of the European Dialysis and Transplant Nursing Association/European Renal Care Association (EDTNA/ERCA) 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 Journal of Renal Care is an important journal for all healthcare professionals working in this and associated conditions, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, among others. It covers the trajectory of the disease from the first diagnosis to palliative care and includes acute renal injury. The journal accepts that kidney disease affects not only the patients but also their families and significant others and provides a forum for both the psycho-social and physiological aspects of the disease.
