Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a serious and growing public health problem. The purpose of this study is to find out if an educational worksheet, called the Encounter Decision Intervention (EDI), combined with health coaching helps CKD patients improve their blood pressure and other health outcomes. The research team hypothesizes that the intervention group will have greater improvement in CKD outcomes than the control group.
Patients that meet eligibility criteria and are seen in a clinic assigned to the control group will be given a Control-Encounter Decision Intervention (Control-EDI) about kidney disease in general (not tailored to the patient) by their primary care provider. Eligible patients that agree to participate and give consent will complete enrollment, 1, 6, and 12 month follow-up visits.
Eligible patients that are seen in a clinic assigned to the intervention group will be given a personalized Intervention-EDI by their primary care provider. Following this, eligible patients that agree to participate and give consent will complete the enrollment visit, and have a baseline call with a health coach. In addition to the 1, 6, 12 month follow-up visits these patients will also have approximately 4-6 phone calls with the health coach between the baseline visit and 11 months after enrollment.
In both groups the study team will be collecting medical information and assessments regarding their health; blood sample and urine samples at baseline and 12 months; approximately 4-6 phone calls; as well as surveys at various time points.

Abnormal enlargement or swelling of a KIDNEY due to dilation of the KIDNEY CALICES and the KIDNEY PELVIS. It is often associated with obstruction of the URETER or chronic kidney diseases that prevents normal drainage of urine into the URINARY BLADDER.
Intervention that relies on free expression of emotions with coaching to enhance awareness of emotional experiences.
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
