Patterns and mechanisms of fatigue in individuals on hemodialysis

My research is focused on understanding trajectory patterns and pathophysiological factors predicting fatigue levels in individuals on hemodialysis treatment. We can develop interventions once we understand the mechanisms behind fatigue. I want them to be able to live fatigue-free.

Program of Research

Bincy Joshwa, PhD, MSN, RN, is an Assistant Professor at the College of Nursing, Wayne State University. Her program of research centers on understanding fatigue in patients on hemodialysis. Her dissertation research, funded by American Nephrology Nurses Association and BlueCross BlueShield Foundation of Michigan, provided an understanding of the trajectory patterns of fatigue in individuals undergoing hemodialysis. Her current research is focused on determining the role of cytokines in predicting fatigue.

Dr. Joshwa has published articles on fatigue including multiple dimensions and correlates of fatigue, evidence and recommendations for fatigue assessment, prevalence of various symptoms in individuals on hemodialysis.
