The primary goals of newsletter publications are to disseminate educational information to ESRD patients and provide for patient feedback. The Patient Advisory Committee (PAC) is responsible for publishing Kidney Koncerns. PAC members are available to discuss issues of concern with other patients in the Network. This provides an opportunity for shared experiences of other patients who understand the dialysis/transplantation rigors. Kidney Koncerns is published quarterly and distributed to all dialysis and transplant patients via the facility social worker and transplant coordinators. Feedback from the patients has been positive. News You Can Use (formely known as The Vision) has been published by the staff of Network 13 to educate the ESRD renal community on issues that may be concern to them. Issues of News You Can Use and The Vision can be downloaded from our Web site.
