AbstractTwelve adults, six with end-stage renal disease and s1x considered healthy, were tested for knowledge of internal human anatomy and physiological function. The testing methods used were the Inside-the Body Test and Interview, and the Chambers Kidney Knowledge Test. There was no significant difference in internal anatomy sketched and physiological function identified between the two groups. The major limitation was the size of the sample (N=12). It was recommended that the study be replicated with a larger sample and administered in a more conducive environment for testing than was available for the majority of this project.
