The Renal Physicians Association (RPA) is the professional organization of nephrologists whose goal is to ensure quality care under the highest standards of medical practice for patients with kidney disease and related disorders.
Dale Singer Executive Director, Renal Physicians Association, Rockville, Maryland; dsinger@renalmd.org
The only clinical practice guidelines available at the time were the ones for hemodialysis adequacy developed by the Renal Physicians Association (Hornberger, 1993 a, b; and Renal Physicians Association Working Committee on Clinical Practice Guidelines, 1993).
In 2000, the Renal Physicians Association (RPA) developed clinical practice guidelines for "Shared Decision-Making in the Appropriate Initiation of and Withdrawal from Dialysis" with a revision in 2010.
Michael Shapiro, MD, MBA, President, Renal Physicians Association (RPA)
There is a recent comprehensive American guideline written by the Renal Physicians Association (2010) called Shared decision making in the appropriate initiation of and withdrawal from dialysis.
* Available clinical practice guidelines, such as the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) guidelines published by the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the Renal Physicians Association (RPA) guidelines, need to be integrated into actual clinical practice.
The Renal Physicians Association and American Society of Nephrology clinical practice guidelines (2000) on initiation and withdrawal of dialysis suggest the issue of prognosis be discussed with patients, yet it is an area nephrologists fail to articulate.
Congress originally barred ESRD patients from participation in MCPs to address HMOs' concerns regarding the expense of ESRD enrollees; the enrollment restriction has remained in place to protect ESRD patients because concern exists over the potential incentives under managed care to undertreat patients with a chronic disease (Fax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982; Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993; Renal Physicians Association and American Society of Nephrology, 1995).
Gupta is a member of Dallas County Medical Society, National Kidney Foundation, Renal Physicians Association, and Texas Medical Association.
In nephrology, ACP discussions should include the initiation, withholding, and withdrawal of dialysis (Davison et al., 2015; Renal Physicians Association [RPA], 2010).
Nephrology-specific clinical guidelines (Renal Physicians Association and American Society of Nephrology [RPA/ASN], 2000), palliative care education (Davison, Jhangri, Holley, & Moss, 2006; Ferrell, 2006; Fischer, Gozansky, Kutner, Chomiak, & Kramer, 2003; Holley et al., 2003; Moss et al., 2004), and commitment to provide clinically excellent and compassionate renal care inform and enrich this work.
