Our interdisciplinary team is developing a person-centered dialysis care planning program, My Dialysis Plan. The program aims to improve patient-care team communication and promote individualization of dialysis care. Program resources include a video and written materials for patients and care team members.

Short Video: Let’s Talk about Dialysis Care Planning

This 3.5 minute video was created “by patients, for patients” aiming to encourage patients to get involved in their dialysis care planning as a means to care individualization.

Written Materials

*Patient & care team written materials coming late fall 2019!*
