Program Overview 
Kidney transplantation is the best option to restore quality of life for most patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD).  Dialysis unit staff require relevant and accurate information regarding advances in kidney transplantation in order to educate patients in their dialysis units.  Dialysis patients benefit from education that starts early in their diagnosis of ESRD.  Through partnership with dialysis unit staff and nephrology practice staff, we are able to provide a consistent message throughout the care continuum about the lifesaving benefit of kidney transplantation, connections between patient experience and transplant outcomes, and strategies for overcoming barriers to successful transplantation.
