RESEARCH LED BY MATT RIVARA CREATES A NEW TOOL TO IMPROVE PATIENTS’ HOME DIALYSIS CARE
Myriad studies have shown that home dialysis affords patients independence and a better quality of life. The newly developed tool assesses patients’ opinions and home dialysis experience to ensure that incremental quality improvement efforts focus on areas and priorities that are important to patients, and not just doctors. Congratulations to Matt, his KRI colleagues Drs. Raj Mehrotra and Jonathan Himmelfarb and Research Coordinator Lisa Anderson, as well as, Todd Edwards, PhD and Donald Patrick, PhD, colleagues at the University of Washington.
