In scanning through the KDOQI guidelines for this article, I applaud the Work Group members as there is an emphasis placed on timely education of the patient, their family members, close friends, and/or primary care providers for both HD and PD. We have all seen in our practice setting, how critical education is for our patients. Studies have shown that timely patient education as CKD advances can both improve outcomes and reduce cost. These guidelines certainly emphasize the importance of advocating for education of patients with CKD. We know that we as nephrology nurses are crucial for educating the patient with CKD, the patient with ESRD, family members, and caregivers and for re-enforcing their education.
