The Peritoneal Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study

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.

PDOPPS: Who We Are

The PDOPPS is overseen by the PDOPPS International Steering Committee and investigators representing each of the PDOPPS countries, and coordinated by Arbor Research Collaborative for Health (Arbor Research). Research is guided by these investigators, as well as working groups in different study areas.
