The January Patient Flyer/Poster on Helping Navigate Kidney Disease has been added to the Northwest Renal Network website. It describes how Networks can confidentially help patients whenever they have a concern about their care, and provides the toll-free phone number, 800-262-1514, that patients in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska (Network 16) can call for help. Find the flyer at https://nwrn.org/patients-a-family/ptedres/mon.html .
Procedures in other states and Networks will be similar. Patients in Southern Central and Southern California (Network 18) can call 800-637-4767. For other areas of the US, see http://esrdncc.org/en/ESRD-network-map/ .
