ASN Main Color.pngThe world is adjusting to the new and uncertain realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. ASN has worked tirelessly to address many of the important topics related to the changes. Please see below for many vital COVID-19 resources.

- Making the Case for Change: Including People with Kidney Diseases in COVID-19 Trials

  • Clinical trials often exclude people with kidney diseases. This means that 37 million people in the United States are rarely represented in the kind of research that advances change in treatment and care. The challenges that result from such exclusion are highlighted by the current COVID-19 crisis.
     

- Excerpt: Accelerating Technology Development During a Pandemic to Bring More People with Kidney Failure Home

  • The opportunity to receive kidney replacement therapy at home via home hemodialysis (HHD), peritoneal dialysis (PD), or other technology, either during the pandemic or non-emergent times could substantially improve the quality of life for people with kidney failure. Now is the time to accelerate the development of wearable or implantable products that offer patients more options for their treatment.
     

- CDC Recommendations for Dialysis Centers Grappling with COVID-19

  • Strategies for safely transporting dialysis patients with COVID-19, as well as for discontinuing isolation for staff and patients after infections, were highlighted during an ASN webinar on COVID-19 hosted by the ASN COVID-19 Response Team.
