NYKidney sponsors monthly topics of interest to the transplant and ESRD provider community.

Topic: Disparities in Referrals, Listing, and Transplant in the ESRD Population
Date: October 28, 2020
Time: 4:00 p.m. ET

The program will discuss: 

  • The causes of variability in access to kidney transplantation are multilevel (health system, provider, and patient levels) and multifactorial. 
  • There is substantial variation in access to each step of the kidney transplant process across the nation, as well as among dialysis facilities in the NY region.
  • Ongoing efforts in ESRD Network 1,2,6, and 9 seek to routinely collect data on early transplant steps-data missing from national surveillance data-to better understand barriers and facilitators to transplant access and inform interventions to address inequities. 

The programs are 1 hour in length on Zoom.  If interested, please email Kristy Richards krichards@nykidney.org for registration.
