Review: The renal dietitian's role in managing hyperphosphatemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism in dialysis patients: A national survey

Martin CJ, Reams SM; The renal dietitian's role in managing hyperphosphatemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism in dialysis patients: A national survey. J Ren Nutr. 2003 Apr;13(2):133-6

The authors present survey research data about renal dietitians for the treatment of bone mineral metabolism. The implications go beyond the study, however, and highlight the use of clinical practice guidelines by allied health professionals. The survey revealed a large variability in the treatment of bone mineral metabolism by these professionals and pointed to the need to develop and distribute clinical practice guidelines (CPG's) on the subject to those providers. Clearly the article highlights the needs for CPG's and associated standards of practice by clinicians.
