New Patient Group Resource

This year, the Network has worked with facilities in the Quality Improvement Activities to increase patient engagement. One of CMS’s patient engagement objectives is to increase peer to peer support through patient groups.

The Network has collected information from the facilities in the region on the available patient groups and compiled a listing by state as well as some national peer to peer resources and Facebook groups in this document. You will even find information on several new groups that were started this year, including the Kansas City Kidney Connection group that began in October to serve the greater Kansas City area.

Please download the resource and share the information with your patients about the groups in your area. If you have additions, please let us know and we will continue to update the resource and post it online.
