Support for the DOPPS Program

The Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) Program is funded by a consortium of private industry, public funders, and professional societies, with the shared mission of providing a strong scientific basis for the identification of dialysis and CKD practices that are most associated with improved patient survival and quality of life. Since starting in 1996, the base of funding has expanded to include grants from over 15 funders to support different facets of the collection, analysis, and dissemination of this important information.

Arbor Research Collaborative for Health recognizes supporters for their generous contributions to the DOPPS Program. Such support enables us to continue our mission to identify best practices for improving patient care, and disseminate this important information to the medical community and others in the renal industry. Arbor Research and our DOPPS collaborators gratefully acknowledge the generous support from sponsors, and their strong commitment to independent scientific research for improved patient care.
