OBJECTIVE: To design and validate the content and format of a guidebook for chronic renal failure patients about the care with venous access for hemodialysis at home.
METHOD: Methodological study, in which the steps for the guidebook design were: project planning, literature search, material content, and qualification selection.
RESULTS: After analysis of the articles, the content to be included in the guidebook was selected. The first draft of the guidebook was submitted for content and format validation, with the participation of 12 specialists. The necessary adjustments for the design of the final version were made with the help of an illustrator.
CONCLUSION: The designed guidebook, “Hemodialysis: Care of Venous Accesses and Intercurrences at Home,” consists of educational material to help hemodialysis patients with daily care with central venous catheter and arteriovenous fistula practices in case of intercurrences.
