Coming soon: Effective Patient Engagement Strategies to Develop Therapies and Advance Patient Safety

By ASN Staff

In the upcoming April issue of Kidney News, Kevin Fowler’s new article “Effective Patient Engagement Strategies to Develop Therapies and Advance Patient Safety” will be available.

The article explores the barriers and patient perspectives on kidney disease clinical trials and Fowler investigates how best to approach getting patients to participate in beneficial clinical trials. He developed a survey with the intention to determine why patients participated in kidney disease trials and to also learn why they did not participate.

Some of his findings include:

He continues the piece by explaining the efforts of the Patient Family Partnership Council, which assists the Kidney Health Initiative (KHI) and recommending three ways to change the culture of the kidney disease community, thereby elevating the community’s expectations. They include:

1.) patient engagement: understanding patient attitudes and beliefs about clinical trials
2.) nephrology communication skills training
3.) changing the conversation about the options available to dialysis patients
