Patient and Family Engagement


Are you a dialysis or transplant patient? Or, are you a caregiver/family member of a patient? Have you ever felt like your concerns were not heard, especially when you knew you could do something that would change things for the better? Have you ever had an idea, but felt reserved or unsure about how to share it? Quality Insights Renal Network 4 has an opportunity for you!

We need your expertise to help fulfill different roles:

  • Patient Representative

  • Peer Mentor

  • Subject Matter Expert (SME) working on various quality improvement projects

What do these roles entail?

  • Help Network staff understand what is important to patients

  • Share useful ideas and experiences

  • Represent the Network at your own dialysis facility

  • Be a support to other patients

You have a unique set of skills and understanding of the dialysis experience that no one else can provide. Take time to share your talents and ideas with other patient representatives/mentors/SMEs. Learn more about things that are happening in the Network 4 region to empower dialysis patients. Your voice will count where it matters most in the care you receive or the care your loved one receives.
