Learning from Our Patients, Learning from Our Practice: Implementing an Intervention to Support Patients on Dialysis


About this study

The purpose of this research project is to learn, alongside clinical staff and leadership, how to embed, test, and sustain patient-centered interventions to support patient capacity in the dialysis practice.  Patients on long-term dialysis are burdened by both their illness and their treatment such that the workload they face often exceeds their capacity to shoulder it.
