The IPRO ESRD Network Program offers educational content for patients through our Kidney Chroniclesand PAC Speaks newsletters. Primarily distributed electronically, these newsletters focus on topics that involve patient engagement and education about ESRD, as well as updates on quality improvement activities and emergency response resources.
Here’s a quick look at what each newsletter has to offer!
Kidney Chronicles features educational information for patients, their care partners and family members. It is emailed to facility staff members with a request that they print and distribute copies to patients served by the facility. Network Patient Advisory Committee (PAC) members and Patient Subject Matter Experts (SME) also receive the newsletter via email.
The PAC Speaks newsletter is written by patients for patients about important issues for people living with end stage renal disease. This newsletter is also distributed to participants of the PAC and to patient SMEs, as well as dialysis facility staff.
