Transplant

Patients with kidney failure have several different treatment options. One of those options is getting a kidney transplant. This page contains information about transplantation, including living donation, expanded criteria kidneys from deceased donors, podcasts from real transplant patients, and resources that can help patients make the personal decision to begin the journey to Kidney Transplant.

Transplant Status Change Form

Transplant centers shared that the big barrier they face is having current information about a patient on their kidney transplant waiting list.  Dialysis facilities can help transplant centers by:
  1. becoming familiar with patients on the waiting list
  2. identifying changes — like address, contact information or things that may affect the person’s status on the waiting list
  3. sharing this information with the transplant centers
Qsource ESRD Networks created a tracking tool and video instruction to this tool for you to use to improve communications between dialysis facilities and transplant centers.
