Yorkshire Dialysis and Conservative Care Decision Aid

We funded Dr Anna Winterbottom and the YoDCA research team to find out how people with kidney disease make these healthcare decisions. From their studies, they designed this booklet to help people, and their families, decide how to plan their care with their kidney units. Our members think the YoDCA booklet will help people make a decision about which treatment best suits their life, as their kidney disease starts to get worse.

Download this booklet to find out more about managing kidney disease using dialysis or conservative care. If you would like to integrate the booklet in to your service, adapt its content and/or use it in a research project, please get in touch with Anna Winterbottom
