The DOPPS Program collects observational longitudinal data from around the world
clinical practices with the most benefit for patients.
The DOPPS is a study of hemodialysis practices begun in 1996 and now in over twenty countries.
In collaboration with the International Society of Peritoneal Dialysis, PDOPPS is launching in 2013 to study areas of greatest practice uncertainty in peritoneal dialysis.
The Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) Practice Monitor (DPM) reports more than 800 regularly updated charts, figures, and data tables. Emerging trends in US hemodialysis (HD) practice through August 2013, based on a national sample of US dialysis facilities, are included in the latest DPM update.
