How to Have a Good Future with Kidney Disease

A patient-centered CKD education series in 6 parts

Background

The non-profit Medical Education Institute, Inc., developed the How to Have a Good Future with Kidney Disease toolkit and videos so any renal professional can educate patients. Ideally, we want people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to slow progression of their illness. If that is not possible, they need to choose a treatment option that will suit their preferred lifestyle—and make a safe transition to that option. To succeed, education is key. This slide series can help you educate people from stage 3 CKD through end-stage renal disease, one-on-one or in groups. The slides can be used for MIPPA purposes. No registration is needed to download and use the FREE kit or to view the videos. No outside funding supported development of this series.
