Timing of meetings with HCPs and key decisions. Orange, blue and yellow backgrounds indicate the times patients are expected to reach a decision on modality or have HD or PD access installed, respectively. Centre 3 also offers an optional 4-month course (sessions every 2 weeks) run by a multidisciplinary team for groups of 10 patients (with estimated glomerular filtration rates <20 ml/min per 1.73 m2) and their families. This is independent of expected treatment start. Centre 7 offers a residential course (2 nights) for 20 people (patients and families) twice per year. At Centre 1, patients have the option to meet with a transplant nurse, educational/pre-dialysis nurse, or dietician at each visit. Note that the figures for Centre 9 are approximations – patients are offered input based on an individual need basis. CKD = chronic kidney disease; HD = haemodialysis; PD = peritoneal dialysis.
