Launch of Patient Decision Aid for Advanced Kidney Disease – planning for end of life care

This new patient decision aid (PDA) adds to the eight PDAs already available on NHS Direct. This PDA is for adults with advanced kidney disease whose condition falls into one of two categories: The patient is not responding well to dialysis or transplantation and has decided to stop treatment, knowing that the end of life stage of kidney disease will eventually follow; or, The patient has opted for conservative kidney management rather than dialysis or transplantation, and has recognised that they are now approaching the end of life stage of their kidney disease.
