Improving Guidelines for Dialysis Initiation

CANN-NET’s first project was to review existing guidelines for the timing of dialysis initiation in Canada.  The guidelines were updated based on recent information from clinical trials and are now available online for kidney patients and health care providers. CANN-NET is also setting up a network of chronic kidney disease clinics across Canada to share the guidelines as well as tools to enhance their use.
