ISN President Presents at Patient Support Group ConferenceISN admin
Kidney Warriors Foundation, India’s largest kidney patient support group, held the virtual conference, “Patient Advocacy in kidney transplantation, renal diet and dialysis, for bringing uniform treatments and renal practices across major cities in India,” on December 20, 2020.
Patient-centeredness is a central tenet of health care delivery: only patients can fully understand the challenges of living with kidney disease. ISN President, Professor Jha, was among the expert panelists discussing India’s emerging kidney patient advocacy.
Professor Jha commented, “The ISN is committed to supporting greater involvement of patients with kidney disease in decisions relating to their own care through shared decisionmaking. Patient-led advocacy is critical to transform the overall quality of clinical care and research in kidney health.”
