Summary
Brief summary
This study aims to determine the most effective nutrition management for patients with chronic kidney disease in terms of assessment and intervention methods.
It is expected that provision of individual nutrition counselling with structured telephone-based follow-up will improve the nutritional status, quality of life and dietary intake of chronic kidney disease patients preparing for dialysis compared with standard care treatment.
