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.
In the September 2015 DPM update, we observe several apparent practice changes related specifically to mineral and bone disorder management. Click here to learn more about these trends.
Anemia management is an essential element of care for hemodialysis patients. Following two major policy changes in the United States in 2011, there has been a dramatic rise in average ferritin levels, sustained into 2013. The DOPPS examines this sustained rise in a paper published in the latest issue of the Clinical Journal of The American Society of Nephrology. Click here to learn more about the findings.
We welcome proposals from outside investigators. Learn more about research collaboration and ancillary studies.
