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.
