ESTENOZ ODIO, Gustavo  and  ALVAREZ PENA, Mayra. Control and quality management in hemodialysis. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.5, pp.657-665. ISSN 1029-3019.

Systems of quality management have been progressively added to health context along with hemodialysis centers, the pioneers in this field, due to the need to optimize the processes that comprise it, to improve the life quality of patients, and to guarantee a major survival. All this has motivated the current updating of the different resources in order to carry out the control and quality management developed by Cuban Ministry of Public Health, through the follow-up of indicators that stimulate dialysis units to include them in its practice, to define the different welfare processes and the ways to measure its validity, as well as to elaborate guides that serve as a reference point for further improvement areas which are conveniently monitored.

Keywords : hemodialysis; quality management; quality management; health indicators.
