Research environment was teaching hospital in Hamedan city.  Before intervention the mean of intradialysis weight gain due one week was measured. Then Small Group education performed in 4 sessions. The variable measured again after one week and one month after intervention. In order to analyze data, SPSS Software and descriptive and inferential statistics tests were used.

Results: The mean weight gain between dialysis sessions before, one week and one month after the end of training sessions was respectively, 3.64, 1.34 and 1.71 kg (P<0.00). The mean systolic blood pressure before, one week and one month after training, was 139.7, 129.6 and 129.5 respectively (P<0.00) that In both, the differences were significant.
