Advanced Care Planning Tool
Share |

RPA developed this tool to facilitate advance care planning for CKD and ESRD patients. It should be kept in the patient’s paper or electronic chart. RPA urges nephrology practitioners to address advance care planning within the first 90 days of providing care, and to review these care plans annually or more frequently, particularly if a change in patient status occurs.

RPA advises that there are a variety of resources available that may assist in the individualization of the advance care planning process, including the second edition of the RPA Clinical Practice Guideline on Shared Decision-Making in the Appropriate Initiation of and Withdrawal from Dialysis. The specific resources referenced below are only examples of some of the validated evidence-based tools currently in use for CKD or ESRD patients.

RPA strongly endorses the role of nephrology practitioners in conducting timely, consistent, detailed, and ongoing discussions regarding advance care planning for all CKD and ESRD patients as part of a patient-centered approach to nephrology care.
