The Coalition for Supportive Care of Kidney Patients (CSCKP) brings together like-minded people who care deeply about the quality of compassionate, supportive care for kidney patients. We are professionals from many disciplines and laypersons who are working for true patient-centered care that values quality of life.
Promote effective interchange among patients, families, healthcare professionals, and payers to ensure the provision of patient-centered supportive care for patients with kidney disease.
Offer palliative care to everyone with chronic and end-stage kidney disease, from the time of diagnosis through the end of life and bereavement. Informed, supported patients and families receive the care they want.
Create culture change that transforms the treatment of persons with kidney disease, putting every patient at the center and integrating palliative principles and practices throughout the care continuum.
