Early mortality is a significant concern for patients initiating dialysis. Nutrition and exercise are two factors that affect mortality rates that can be significantly influenced by a successful partnership between the healthcare team and the patient. This article provides an overview of current data on the importance of appropriate nutritional and exercise regimens for patients initiating dialysis, as well as tips for how nurses and other members of the healthcare team can work to incrementally improve these components of care.
