Download your kidney care empowerment checklist
Patient Self Assessment
If you are a kidney disease patient, download use the patient self assessment. Think through the questions before your next clinic appointment, and talk about them with a patient advocate (a spouse, family member, or friend). Bring the sheet to your doctor and ask how they can help you become empowered in as many areas as possible.
If you are a kidney care doctor, nurse, or technician, download the provider checklist to use with your patients. It's also a great idea to print out both versions and have your patient self-assess too. Compare your answers to find out where you are aligned with your patient, and where there might be some gaps in understanding.
