Reaching consensus on the important outcomes for peritoneal dialysis patients

Kidney Int. 2019 Sep;96(3):545-546. doi: 10.1016/j.kint.2019.05.002.


The Standardized Outcomes in Nephrology (SONG) initiative is designed to improve research productivity by building consensus. Stakeholders involved with peritoneal dialysis (PD) have put life participation on top of their list, along with treatment-related infection, cardiovascular complications, and patient and technique survival. This should lead to improved reporting of these outcomes and their prioritization in future research.
