Abstract/Context: Data supporting PhD thesis. Mixed methods sequential explanatory study design was used in this research study. In the quantitative phase, a survey with close-ended questions was conducted with both the dialysis patient and carer groups in a regional hospital of Hong Kong. The findings were then analysed and used to guide the qualitative component of the study; specifically, the questions to be asked during the focus group interviews. The qualitative data from focus groups generated different information, reflecting common versus diverse views that prepared people to deal with more sensitive issues related to end-of-life care.
