Abstract: Chronic renal failure is a complex condition in which a plethora of psychological and physiological complications may occur and for which haemodialysis is one treatment option. Patients at Hampstead Dialysis Centre, South Australia, are offered the option to exercise whilst undergoing dialysis (intradialytic exercise) with the assistance of dedicated exercise physiologists, as it may ameliorate some of the ubiquitous symptoms of their renal condition. The objectives of this study were to determine whether the provision of motivational interviewing (MI) would increase the uptake of intradialytic exercise in patients who did not exercise at all or who exercise at minimal levels.
