Promote Patient Self-Management

Providing self-management support and educating patients who are living with or at risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a critical part of care. Providing straightforward and comprehensive information to patients can encourage self-management and support informed decision-making, ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes. In addition to numerous patient education brochures and fact sheets, NKDEP has developed resources to help educators and providers present kidney health information to patients, including patient education lesson plans and an education program for community health workers.​​
