    Abstract: Objectives: Less than 10% of end-stage renal disease(ESRD) patients in Taiwan receive peritoneal dialysis (PD),which reveals the situation of underutilization of PD. Wethus aimed to investigate factors associated with treatmentwith PD in ESRD patients in Taiwan.Patients: Patients that were 18 years of age or older andhad been on dialysis for at least 3 months since 2001 wererecruited and interviewed with a structured questionnaire.Results: 98 hemodialysis (HD) and 102 PD patients wererecruited. In univariate analysis, age, sex, level of education,employment status, marital status, traffic time, family support, patient cognition, and receptivity were correlated withtreatment with PD. Multivariate analysis showed that patients that were not married (p = 0.006), that spent moretime traveling to the dialysis clinic (p = 0.006), that werenot emergent at the start of dialysis (p = 0.003), and thathad better family support (p = 0.045), a higher cognitionof dialysis (p = 0.034), and stronger receptivity to dialysis(p < 0.001) were more likely to receive PD.Conclusions: We recommend patients follow the standardprocess to obtain more exhaustive information, consultation, and early referral. In addition, we suggest healthcareproviders remind patients to take into account suchnonclinical factors as family support and patient receptivity when they choose their dialysis modality
