About this conference

The goal of this conference is to develop a network of stakeholders (patients, providers, payors, and researchers) interested in issues related to chronic kidney disease (CKD), in hearing the patients and caregivers voice, and in developing patient-centered outcomes research projects to improve the quality of life of patients with CKD.

We will begin a discussion about:

  • The patients and caregivers experience
  • Transitions of care from childhood to adulthood
  • Shared decision-making and end of life care
  • Exercise for patients with CKD or end stage renal disease (ESRD)

Target Audience

  • Patients, their families, and their caregivers
  • Payers (representatives from insurance companies, Medicare/Medicaid, and
    similar groups)
  • Providers including, but not limited to, primary care physicians, nephrologists, nurses, physician assistants, social work and public health professionals
  • Researchers
  • Policy makers
  • Healthcare administrators
