Studies Underway


The Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Study is a national, 5-year longitudinal study of treatment and outcomes for hemodialysis patients.  The University of Michigan is conducting the study with support from Amgen.  A random sample of 30 patients per dialysis facility in the US (160 facilities, 4800 patients), Europe (100 facilities, 3000 patients; France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK), and Japan (60 facilities, 1800 patients) are being asked to participate in the study.  KDQOL-SF surveys are completed at baseline and annually thereafter.
