The Peritoneal Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study
(PDOPPS) is designed to advance the understanding of optimal practices for PD
patients worldwide. The goal of this study is to increase the appropriate use
of PD, extend technique survival, and improve quality of life for PD patients.
The overarching study aim is to understand the impact of modifiable practices
in the management of PD patients on the risk of all-cause peritoneal dialysis
technique failure. Since its inception PDOPPS has been a mutual collaboration
with the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD) around key areas
of PD clinical practice guidelines and variation in PD practice.
