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 studies areas of greatest practice uncertainty in peritoneal dialysis.
Across various medical fields, functional dependence has been shown to contribute to disability, hospitalization, and increased mortality. Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) researchers investigated whether functional dependence also contributes to morbidity and mortality in long-term dialysis patients, who have among the highest mortality and hospitalization rates.

The Peritoneal Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (PDOPPS) is
designed to advance the understanding of optimal practices for peritoneal
dialysis (PD) patients. In a paper published recently in the journal
Peritoneal Dialysis International, researchers describe their methods to
collect and analyze data that will lead to improved patient care. To learn more
