The 'Kidney Patient Network' is a kidney patient and family advisory group that bring together patients and their families who are motivated and focused on improving lives of kidney patients. The Kidney Patient Network contributes to a policy and programs development for kidney patients and understands the importance of advocating for patients to ensure an outstanding patient experience.

This group provides an opportunity to engage patients and their families to strengthen their role as critical partner in their overall healthcare experience.

This selected group of kidney patients and families will meet on a monthly basis to engage in dialogue related to common issues of kidney patients.
