Bottom Line: The three main reasons given to the low prevalence of PD were an easy access to HD, patient refusal and lack of nephrologist motivation.Almost all the nephrologists insisted on the need for a dedicated nursing team delivering an effective educational programme and PD management and care.Enhanced nephrologist motivation and training in PD were identified as predominant factors to be upgraded, as well as patient education programmes.

ABSTRACT
Although peritoneal dialysis (PD) is recognized as an effective renal replacement therapy (RRT) alternative to haemodialysis (HD), its prevalence is around 15% in most of the industrialized countries. In the French-speaking part of Belgium, PD is clearly underused with a prevalence of 8.7% in 2009. The main objectives of this work were to evaluate the nephrologists' perceived obstacles to PD implementation and reflect on possible actions towards PD development. A computer-based 33-item questionnaire was sent by e-mail to all nephrologists affiliated to the French-speaking association. Among 120 adult nephrologists targeted by this inquiry, 97 completed the online questionnaire (response rate 80.8%). Among them, 29% had little experience with PD (treating less than five patients) and 39% reported no specific training with this modality of RRT. However, 88% of responders claimed PD prevalence should be around 20-25%. Half of the responders would choose PD as a first RRT option if they required RRT for themselves. The three main reasons given to the low prevalence of PD were an easy access to HD, patient refusal and lack of nephrologist motivation. Almost all the nephrologists insisted on the need for a dedicated nursing team delivering an effective educational programme and PD management and care. They believe that PD could and should be implemented in Belgium. Enhanced nephrologist motivation and training in PD were identified as predominant factors to be upgraded, as well as patient education programmes.

Prevalent ESKD patients in the French-speaking part of Belgium. Patients are distributed according to the different RRT modalities from 2000 to 2010: in-centre HD is the predominant RRT modality when compared with self-care HD in satellite units (also called low-care HD) and PD. The proportion of renal grafts has significantly increased during the last decade.

SFT041F1: Prevalent ESKD patients in the French-speaking part of Belgium. Patients are distributed according to the different RRT modalities from 2000 to 2010: in-centre HD is the predominant RRT modality when compared with self-care HD in satellite units (also called low-care HD) and PD. The proportion of renal grafts has significantly increased during the last decade.

Mentions: In the French-speaking part of Belgium, the PD technique is clearly underused, reaching a prevalence of just 8.7% in 2009. Between 2000 and 2009, the total number of patients reaching end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) has significantly progressed (+58%) (Figure 1). A large part of the increase was due to the development of in-centre HD (for patients needing close medical supervision and/or nursing care) as well as self-care HD in satellite units. These last ones, also called low-care HD units as patients are actively involved in their treatment (and assisted by a nurse if needed), grew from 8.4 to 19.5%. In the same time interval, PD grew only from 8.3 to 8.7% (data collected by the Registry of ESKD from the French-speaking Belgian Nephrologist Association: http://www.gnfb.be).Fig. 1.
