Hemodialysis Opioid Prescription Effort (HOPE) Consortium
Part of NIH’s HEAL initiative, the Hemodialysis Opioid Prescription Effort (HOPE) consortium addresses the prescription of opioid medications in the ESRD hemodialysis population.
NIDDK Participation in NIH’s HEAL
In conjunction with NIH’s HEAL initiative, NIDDK proposed the Hemodialysis Opioid Prescription Effort (HOPE) consortium as a means of addressing pain and opioid use within the U.S. End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) hemodialysis program.
The NIDDK will focus on
- pain in U.S. ESRD hemodialysis patients
- reduction of chronic opioid prescriptions for the ESRD population
- behavioral, cognitive, and medical interventions to reduce pain and the number of opioid prescriptions in ESRD hemodialysis patients
About the HOPE Consortium
The HOPE consortium is composed of eight Clinical Centers and a Scientific and Data Research Center. The consortium delivers a pain coping skills intervention and offers buprenorphine to reduce dependence on opioids in selected hemodialysis patients.
NIDDK offers the following funding opportunities for HOPE

About NIH’s HEAL initiative
The National Institutes of Health HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-term) Initiative is a trans-agency effort focused on improving prevention and treatment strategies for opioid misuse and addiction, and enhancing pain management. Launched in April 2018 with funding from Congress, the opioid HEAL Initiative, brings new hope for people, families, and communities affected by the national public health crisis.
