PrepareNOW – Tools for Physicians and Practices

Prepare NOW provides a solution to help your practice better prepare patients to make decisions about kidney disease treatments. The program breaks down the process of preparing your patient into three distinct processes, represented in the acronym “NOW”:

prepareNow_news  Break the news to your patients that they may need kidney replacement therapy in a way they can understand and digest.
prepareNow_options  Review the variety of treatment alternatives available to your patients in plain language.
prepareNow_weigh  Weigh the pros and cons with patients so that they may be as actively involved in treatment decision-making as they would like.

The Prepare NOW tools below, developed by a team of experts in nephrology, communication, and shared and informed decision-making, are completely adaptable to your organization.
