Peer Mentoring

Kidney patients supporting one another

A peer mentor can be a great help to people starting dialysis.

Peer mentors provide emotional support and help patients navigate a complex system. Peer-mentoring programs can improve patient engagement, and they can help providers deliver a better patient experience.

We are pleased to provide a set of tools, developed by our Consumer Committee and others, to help you start a peer-mentoring program.

In 2015, ten facilities in our Network field-tested these tools with positive results!
