Hemodialysis is the most common renal replacement therapy option for individuals diagnosed with end-stage renal disease. In patients who continue this treatment, while the signs and symptoms due to kidney failure are controlled with hemodialysis treatment, the treatment process and the continuation of life depending on the hemodialysis machine also cause different problems. Fatigue, which is frequently experienced among these problems, severely limits the daily life activities of individuals. Therefore, effective management of fatigue, especially in patients receiving hemodialysis treatment, contributes to improving the quality of life of patients and their relatives. In the light of this information, this review focuses on evidence based integrative approaches in managing fatigue and its clinical use.
