NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The National Kidney Foundation is collaborating with Tufts University on a three-year project to help older patients with advanced stages of kidney disease and their family care partners make decisions that best reflect their goals and preferences for care. Funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), the project “Promoting Autonomy and Improving Shared Decision Making for Older Adults with Advanced Kidney Disease” will address a major concern voiced by patients and care partners about how to best help older patients choose the care that meets their needs and preferences and enables them to engage in activities most meaningful to them.
