Triple I started with hemodialysis patients and their family members asking researchers to bring kidney care into the 21st century.
The project is a partnership of patients, researchers, and healthcare clinicians working together to improve the patient experience of hemodialysis: how you communicate with your team, personalizing your care, and improving when and how you receive information.
We are consulting with people with hemodialysis experience (patients, family members, clinicians) about challenges they face, ideas for care improvements, and suggestions about how to move those ideas into practice. We want new ideas, and we want to find out what’s working well in existing programs.
We are currently in Phase 2 of the project where we will be asking patients and providers to complete a survey to determine priorities for change and to explore ideas for improvement in hemodialysis centres.
