The present study was aimed to evaluate the impact of home education on peritoneal dialysis (PD)-associated peritonitis episode in Al Medina- KSA. Thirty patients' on home PD were identified during their follow up visits to three dialysis units. Data were collected through three structured interviews questionnaire at their home via three tools; sheet for demographic characteristics and PD data and history, pre-posttests questionnaire for knowledge, and observational checklist for practice. Peritonitis episodes indicated by three cultures which were done at the times of; pretest, 3 and 6 months after posttest one. The main study findings revealed that 73.3% of the subjects were males with mean age of 26 year. A highly significant differences were found among pre and posttest one of knowledge part {t (27.892) p˂ (0.001)}, pretest-posttest one and posttest one- two of practice part, {t (8.475) p˂ (0.001) and t (4.805) p˂ (0.001)} respectively. The three consecutive cultures results were showed peritonitis episode as followed (30%, 10% and 13.3%). Positive impact was showed on minimizing peritonitis episode in PD patients following home education but by time spent the patients’ compliance declined. Thus periodical refreshment home education provided by experienced nurses is critically needed to maintain standardized PD practice.
